Birthday or hen party Afternoon Tea in Cambridge

Afternoon Tea is the perfect opportunity to gather your friends for a gossip over great food, especially for a birthday or hen party in Cambridge or simply a fun day out. Afternoon Tea is a traditionally British affair that has been enjoyed since the 1800s. This indulgent afternoon treat is served with scones, cakes and sandwiches, all to be washed down with lots of tea and coffee and sometimes something more alcoholic. Bubbles, anyone?

Afternoon Tea doesn’t give you a bland selection of soggy cucumber sandwiches on boring old white bread. No way! You’re going to munch on the most delicate finger sandwiches with a range of tempting fillings. Of course, you’ll also get some sweet treats for dessert. From scones and Victoria sandwich cakes to cheesy savoury sandwiches, tea and coffee and even fizz, there’s something for everyone, making this activity a great meal for a celebration. Even if you just fancy Afternoon Tea for two in Cambridge to treat a loved one, family member or best friend, you’ll love every minute.

A brief history of Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is one of seven meals the British invented to keep up with their appetites, but it’s almost impossible to fit them all in to one day, so Afternoon Tea is now saved for a treat! Originally, Afternoon Tea was predominantly eaten by the upper classes and drinking tea was an opportunity to socialise. Now everyone can indulge in some delicious Afternoon Tea. Whatever the occasion, trust us ladies, you deserve a treat. The common argument associated with Afternoon Tea is how to pronounce the word scone. Is it pronounced so it rhymes with stone or gone? What do you reckon? Then there’s the heated debate over whether clotted cream or jam goes on the scones first? Whichever way you like to pronounce it or like to eat them, there’s no debate over the fact that the scones you’ll tuck into during Afternoon Tea in Cambridge are delicious and go perfectly with tea…and sandwiches…and cake!

Fancy a French twist?

You could be tucking into a delicious selection of cakes, sandwiches and scones at Café Rouge in Bridge Street. With the decedent extra of free-flowing fizz, you’ll be able to enjoy bottomless prosecco for two hours. Café Rouge put a French twist on your Afternoon Tea in Cambridge, serving Croquet Monsieur, Grilled Emmental Cheese Sandwiches on Sourdough with Smoked Ham and Béchamel Sauce and a selection of cakes and scones.

What should we wear to Afternoon Tea?

The dress code varies from venue to venue so it’s best to ask the activity provider when you place your enquiry, especially if you’d like to wear fancy dress.
