York Afternoon Tea

What better place to indulge in the traditional British pastime of Afternoon Tea than the city of York, the home of tea? This gorgeous, historic city is surrounded by rolling hills and has a lovely laid-back feel, making it the perfect place to sit back and relax over cake, sandwiches, scones and, of course, coffee and tea! Afternoon Tea was made for gathering the girls together on a celebration or for a much needed unwind and chat.

Why not start a birthday or hen weekend in York with Afternoon Tea at Café Rouge in the city centre? This quintessentially English activity is perfect after a morning of shopping in York’s bustling city centre. You’ll able to pop your bags down and settle in yourselves in comfy chairs while a waiter makes sure you have everything you need. At Las Iguanas, you’ll be seated in a Latin-American themed restaurant and enjoy Afternoon Tea with a difference!
