Many Britons look at the holidays as a time of indulgence. From daily ice creams to seaside fish and chips, holiday treats are part of a successful holiday.
Afternoon tea’s interest is peaking during warmer months.

In the North, top afternoon tea destinations include Glasgow, York and Manchester, with W Hamond Tearooms in Whitby named the best UK tea room.
Garden Gate Tea Room has got fantastic reviews.
One reviewer said: “Scones amongst the best we’ve ever had – warm, fresh from the oven and delicious.”
Another added: “What a fantastic find this friendly Tea Room is. Fabulous service, great staff, wonderful food. We came twice in one day and would come again any time.”
The most popular tea rooms in the South included The Garden in Cornwall, Pencil Cottage on the Isle of Wight and Corinthia London in the City of London.
The Garden was branded “a must visit” by reviewers.
One said: “The most beautiful location and the best cream tea I’ve had! The scones were unbelievable and the service was great. I’d recommend anyone visit if in Newquay.”
While a reviewer for Pencil Garden simply said: “Amazing cream tea.”
In the North, W Hamond Tearooms in Whitby also had great reviews.
One Briton said: “The food was delicious and those scones were yummy. I will definitely be going back.”
Another only complained about the slices of cake being too big.
They wrote: “Our cream tea was enjoyable, with a selection of sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and a selection of slices of cake.
“Everything was delicious, although the slices of cake were too large and we were unable to finish them.”
In the search for the best afternoon tea in the UK, the study also revealed the most important items on an afternoon tea menu.
Scones (with clotted cream and jam), cups of tea and cakes are all non-negotiable.
For the best value afternoon tea, Britons should head to Cornwall, where the average price for the treat is £16 per person.
Shannon Keary, Digital PR Manager at Dorset Coastal Cottages, said: “With the hit that many local businesses have taken over the last year, it’s really encouraging to see that Brits are still actively supporting tea rooms and shouting about them online.
“With staycations at an all-time high this year, now is a great time for people to explore different parts of the country and enjoy a quintessential part of British culture – whether you think that scones should be topped with jam or cream first!”
