Where to Go for a Queen’s Jubilee Afternoon Tea

What is more British that an afternoon tea to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee? Enjoy the long Bank Holiday weekend with dainty finger sandwiches, light and fluffy scones and small, picture-perfect sweet treats at one of these venues in the North East.

Though most of these Queen’s Jubilee afternoon teas are taking place at certain venues, I’ve also included details on whether they are doing a take away option so you can take a boxed up afternoon tea on a picnic or have a feast in the comfort of your own home or garden.

As always, this list is by no means complete, feel free to comment below the blog post if you know of any other places offering a Queen’s Jubilee afternoon tea, and I’ll try to add them to the blog post when I can!
