Hendricks Afternoon Tea at the Park Plaza

Park Plaza Hendricks G&Tea

Being time-served afternoon tea aficionados, we do love something new and different when it comes to passing an afternoon partaking of the old tea and cakes.This summer we pushed the boundaries a little bit further by trying the Hendricks ‘G&Tea’ at the Park Plaza Hotel in central Cardiff.None of those Assam vs Darjeeling vs Lapsang Souchon vs English Breakfast discussions here.  Instead the teapot contained

A Weekend Break in London

Afternoon Tea at the Baglioni Hotel

What a lovely weekend we've just had. It started with a minor trauma but that's par for the course for accident-prone me. Mr. C dropped me at one of the doors of The Novotel London West before trundling off to park the car . We had decided beforehand not to park at the hotel as it was so expensive and the NCP car park around the

Christmas Gifts From BuyAGift

Champneys BuyAGift

I've become a big fan recently of giving people 'experiences' rather than actual material gifts.

I'd never heard of them either but now I know who they are, they're going to be one of my go-to websites for ordering gifts which are a little bit different. To be

Pettigrew Tea Rooms

Recently Mr. C and I went back to the rather lovely Pettigrew Tea Rooms for our Wedding Anniversary.Ok, so some of you might wonder why we might choose to go out for Afternoon Tea instead of out for a slap-up meal at a fancy restaurant. Well the thing is that both of us happily agree that afternoon tea is our 'favourite meal'. Way before our

The Cavendish Hotel Champagne Afternoon Tea

The Cavendish Hotel

Just before Christmas I received an email out of the blue saying I'd won an Overnight Stay at The Cavendish Hotel in London  along with tickets to go to see The Bodyguard.You have no idea how excited I was! I never win competitions! But there was a bit of a problem in that the prize was supposed to have been taken literally the next Weekend.
