Afternoon tea has come a long way from stale scones and cucumber sandwiches with a number of glamorous venues in the North West serving up a luxurious and relaxed way to spend your afternoon surrounded by your Bride Squad.

OH ME OH MY

Consider booking this venue in the warmer months to take advantage of the breath-taking roof terrace!

The menu at Thornton Hall offers a range of unusual and aromatic tea flavours from Mulled Wine to Mint Melange (as well as a few stronger drinks to toast the Bride!) What could be a better remedy to shed any wedding-planning stresses than a relaxing treatment, picturesque grounds and sweet treats?
If anywhere was to contradict the traditional afternoon tea image of white lace tablecloths and quaint finger food, it’s the Afternoon Punk Tea at Baltic Social.

Feast on mini cheeseburgers, mac and cheese balls, sweet potato fries and cookie sandwiches – with an equally drool-inducing Vegan menu that everyone can enjoy!
