If you fancy trying something a bit different this summer why not indulge in a spot of Afternoon Tea? I know what you’re thinking. Isn’t it just overpriced tea and cucumber sandwiches? Well, you might be surprised to know that there is much more to this civilised pastime than you first thought. How does a delicious cake and a glass of bubbly sound?
For beautiful setting and a real treat, The Dorchester is the perfect place for Afternoon Tea.
