Within the Cathedral Quarter on the Bishop Grosseteste University campus you will find Curiositea, a quirkycoffee shop with an Alice in Wonderland theme, serving sandwiches, cakes and cream teas. After exploring the boutiques and gift shops in the Bailgate area, try one of the many attractive cafes and coffee shops there such as Sanctuary, another quirky place with a cafe inside a gift shop.
At the bottom of Steep Hill there is Margaret’s Tea Rooms where you can enjoy a delicious traditional afternoon tea served on china plates.
As you make your way nearer to the busy shopping High Street, call in at the Rising Cafe, a great place with a unique choice of traditional English, American or Mexican afternoon tea and a special mini tea for children. Gluten free options available.
If you are enjoying the vibrant Brayford Waterfront area and a more contemporary setting is your thing, go up to the fifth floor of the Hilton hotel overlooking the waterfront to the Electric Bar and Restaurant where you can order a delicious afternoon tea served with a pot of tea or glass of Prosecco.
Of course if you would rather experience the luxury of relaxing together in the lovely country garden, or curling up in front of the log burner, order afternoon tea to be served in your barn by a local chef. Contact us for details.
