Although London is a veritable treasure trove of afternoon tea venues, there are some superb venues to sample outside of the capital too, especially in the South East of the country. Head just outside of London to counties such as Surrey, Kent, West Sussex and East Sussex and enjoy afternoon tea in the countryside, afternoon tea by the sea and afternoon tea in the city. Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire also offer fabulous settings for our favourite culinary pastime. Indulge in tea and cake in historic Oxford with its world famous university or head to the beautiful coastal towns of Kent and East and West Sussex. The South East is a hotspot for country houses and hotels, providing an idyllic countryside setting for afternoon tea. There are afternoon tea venues for all tastes in the South East of England, with many more yet to come.
