Coffee shops are pretty much old news now and it’s tea rooms that are all the rage, which is very British culture of us. Scroll through our ‘tea rooms bucket list’ filled with the best tea rooms across the U.K. for you to visit.
Blackbird Tea Rooms, Brighton
Located in the heart of Brighton’s Lanes, this beautiful two-floor tea room is in a stunning old building, accompanied with a little courtyard out back ideal for dining alfresco.
Pettigrew Tea Rooms, Cardiff
This gorgeous tea room is located next door to the beautiful Cardiff Castle in the heart of Cardiff City centre, making it perfect for both tourists or locals to pop by – but be sure to make a booking to guarantee a table at the highly popular attraction.
Just Grand, Leeds
Take a step back in time with the British traditions of tea drinking, home baking and good old fashioned service at this quaint tea room. Its location in the Grand Arcade makes it a perfect stop off for a spot of afternoon tea amidst a busy day of retail therapy.
Tiny Tim’s Tearoom, Cantebury
This is the only traditional English tearoom in Canterbury, filled with sumptuous 1930’s undertones. Sit back and relax with a cup of tea, and a sarnie while music from the 1930’s period takes you back in time.
The Bridge Tea Rooms, Bradford-on-Avon
Dine in a true piece of history at The Bridge Tea Rooms, which has been around since 1675 and still very much sticks to the periodical culture to this very day, right down to the waiting staff in Victorian costumes.
Going slightly more upmarket, but definitely worth every penny, is the simply devine Claridge’s. With its dainty sandwiches and dainty china, you’ll definitely be feeling like Wills and Kate.
Willow Tearooms, Glasgow
For lovers of art and design, Willow Tea Rooms is an absolute must. Located in one of the most famous streets in Glasgow, Bunchanan Street, the key visitor attraction is that the tea rooms feature a rolling programme of exhibitions and events and is an ideal spot for meeting friends.
