The History of Afternoon Tea

It is said that Afternoon Tea was invented in 1841, by Anna Maria, the wife of the Duke of Bedford. The long gap between lunch and dinner proved too much for her, and so she began to enjoy a pot of tea and a bite to eat in the mid-afternoon. Her fellow aristocrats were quick to develop the idea into a social occasion, and it is this tradition that we embrace with our very own Royal Horseguards Hotel Afternoon Tea.
