Afternoon tea the spa way takes the whole experience to a decadent new level and we know just where to go to find the best of the best!
Spas are all about relaxing and quality time, either by yourself or with a loved one. Part of that should always be a little decadence, making the spa and afternoon tea combination the perfect treat.
In particular, spa hotels that do it with spectacular flair include Rowhill Grange’s afternoon tea in Sussex, a Galgorm afternoon tea at the renowned luxury spa hotel in Ireland, at Armathwaite Hall afternoon tea or a Danesfield House afternoon tea for true romance. Whoever you choose to spend it with, spa and afternoon tea for two is the cherry on top of a spa day or weekend.
