The east of England covers a wide area of the country, spanning from the home counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire through to Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex. With such expanse there is naturally plenty to see and do in the east of England, from the world famous historical city of Cambridge to the beautiful British coastal areas of Suffolk. There are delightful little villages dotted throughout each county, whilst the seaside towns play host to countless visitors during the summertime. Historical cities, sleepy villages, seaside resorts and interesting towns, the east of England has plenty to offer including some rather delightful afternoon tea venues. Enjoy afternoon tea in luxury hotels, afternoon tea by the sea and afternoon tea in a pretty rural tea room. Whatever kind of afternoon tea you are after; you are certain to find it in the east of England.
