The quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea becomes more and more popular each year. There is nothing better than enjoying this experience behind the walls of a castle while tucking into cake, sandwiches and a good cup of tea! If tea isn't quite good enough, why not add a glass or two of Champagne! It would be rude not to!
