Afternoon Tea Awards 2017

I think it’s safe to say that I am a huge fan of Afternoon Tea.  At the beginning of the year I set myself a goal to have Afternoon Tea every month.  I think it is safe to say I have managed that apart from May when I was in hospital for the whole month.  However, I did manage to sneak an extra afternoon tea in to make up for missing one in May.  If I’m honest I’ve sneaked in quite a few more extra ones.  Recently The 2017 Afternoon Tea awards were announced and these were the five winners:

Hotel Cafe Royal

I feel quite lucky to have visited two of the winners already and have a tea booked for later this month at another of the winners; Fortnum & Mason.  Last week whilst in London I visited the Hotel Cafe Royal and in September I was invited to Superdrug’s charity campaign with Marie Curie’s launch at the Rosewood where we were served Afternoon Tea.

The awards named 18 places as Highly Commended:


Then there was the Commended category:

I have already visited 1 of the 26 commended places; the Edgbaston plus I am visiting Fortnum and Mason later this month.

The Edgbaston

In this years awards there were 48 venues listed and some of these like Claridges, The Savoy and Dorchester have been on my wish list for quite some time.  Most of this list, apart from The Edgbaston which I have already visited are a day trip out but over the next couple of years I’d like to visit the remaining 44.  This challenge should keep me very busy!
