We must thank Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, for gifting us all the most quintessential of English customs: afternoon tea. Keen to dispel that sinking feeling between breakfast and dinner, the Duchess asked for a tray of tea, bread and butter and cake to be brought to her room in the late afternoon. By 1845, her high-tea tradition had become a fashionable social event attended by friends and family and before long, afternoon tea was all the rage in fashionable society.

Join us in the Assembly House's dining room for an indulgent afternoon of dainty sandwiches, light-as-air scones, perfect pastries and delicious cakes and enjoy a slice of luxury in the city's most beautiful building.

Afternoon Tea at The Assembly House costs £21.95 for one or £42.00 for two
