Afternoon Tea at Palm Court
Served daily from 12.00pm – 5.30pm
Tradition has it that Afternoon Tea was 'invented' by Anna Maria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, who in 1841 started drinking tea and having a bite to eat in the mid-afternoon, to tide her over during the long gap between lunch and dinner.
This swiftly developed into a social occasion, which is as popular today as it was back then. The Balmoral Afternoon Tea in Palm Court is the modern and stylish way to live up this tradition with live Harp and Piano creating an extraordinary atmosphere, not only for a relaxing afternoon or to complete a day of shopping, but also on special occasions.
The Balmoral Afternoon Tea - £25.00
The Balmoral Champagne Afternoon Tea - £40.00
(with a glass of Bollinger Champagne)
