The taking of Afternoon Tea is an art and one to be taken seriously. We indulged in wanton gluttony – all in the name of research natch – to bring you our favourites…

The Library Tea Room at beautiful Auckland Castle now offers a unique version of the traditional, English treat specifically designed for ages 12 and under. And the adult version is pretty stunning too.

Hotel du Vin has launched its new gin-inspired Afternoon Tea. The menu features a selection of hand-picked gins, each perfectly paired with its own tonic. A full Afternoon Tea is available daily from 12-6pm. It includes mini treats of a Knickerbocker glory, lemon meringue pie, raspberry and dark chocolate teacakes and rhubarb and custard doughnuts. All topped off homemade apple candy floss and a choice of teas.

What better way to celebrate Autumn than in the genteel surroundings of Jesmond Dene House indulging in gorgeous patisserie and a fine cup of tea.

Matfen Hall offers the perfect backdrop to play Lord and Lady of the Manor and enjoy a delicious afternoon spread worthy of Downton.

Rockliffe Hall offers the ultimate indulgent afternoon with spa and afternoon tea – perfect for some luxury me time.

The Black Horse at Beamish offers panaromic views and delicious afternoon tea – we suggest you upgrade to the champagne option and take it out onto the roof terrace.
