What a Splendid Afternoon Tea Party!
If you want to be properly immersed in the UK culture, tea in Brighton is essential! To fully capture this traditional experience, you must indulge in mini sandwiches, scones, crumpets topped with jam, and other delectable treats. These are all accompanied by cream tea or Devonshire tea, which is typically served in nice china sets. Afternoon tea is the perfect opportunity to practice the posh English lifestyle and connect with family and friends!
