Afternoon Tea Week FAQs

Afternoon Tea Week is here and you won’t want to miss out! Held annually, this year’s Afternoon Tea Week is taking place from Monday 9th to Sunday 15th August 2021. During the week, many events will take place, with Buyagift also offering a discount code on afternoon tea experiences also during this time.
Afternoon Tea Week was born at the turn of the millennium. Popularity has grown steadily over the past eight years, and it’s now nationally recognized as an annual event.
Invented by the seventh Duchess of Bedford in 1840, afternoon tea began as a small afternoon snack accompanied by a cup of tea. It’s now a deeply embedded British custom, so it’s only right we celebrate with a week-long party! What’s not to love about celebrating finger sandwiches, delicious cakes, endless cups of tea and the occasional glass of Champagne? Read more about afternoon tea in our handy guide.
Buyagift have a great selection of afternoon tea experiences across the UK, including some well-recognised brands such as Patisserie Valerie, Café Rouge, the Marriott to The Langham and Harrods Tea Rooms. Browse our bespoke selection of experiences and discover the perfect afternoon tea for you. From traditional spreads, themed teas, bottomless afternoon tea’s and more, we’ve got something for every palate. If you’d like to enjoy an afternoon tea from the comfort of your own home, then look no further than the range by Piglet’s Pantry that can handily be delivered direct to you.
From a Midsummer Night’s Dream afternoon tea held at The Swan, right next door to Shakespear’s Globe, The Domes at London Secret Garden Kensington, to the lush green stunning surrounds of the Palm Court at The Langham Hotel. Our range of London afternoon tea’s hit the sweet spot every time.

Soak up the elegance of The Harrods Tea Rooms, treat your sweet tooth at Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot 1745, try a rather royal experience at The Rubens at the Palace, or take tea inside an iconic double-decker bus with B Bakery. Keep it traditional with dainty finger sandwiches, homemade scones, luxury cakes and loose-leaf teas. Or, if the classic style isn’t your jam, we’ve got plenty of enticing teas with a twist. Enjoy an entirely bonkers Alice in Wonderland themed tea, a sophisticated Gentleman’s afternoon tea or a cheese lover’s afternoon feast. Watch out for those added extras such as bottomless prosecco, gin and tonics and Champagne – it’s sure to add a touch of sparkle to the experience!
