High tea is known for having the best of both worlds. Sweet and savoury, hot and cold, tea and champagne. Not only do they offer delicious food and are beautifully presented on tiered stands, but they make for a relaxing afternoon that can be enjoyed by the whole family, no matter what their taste.
From sky-high dining to traditional tearooms, chocolate themed to guy themed, there really is something for everyone.
