A Quintessential English Tea Experience
For a quintessential English tea experience, you have to try The Bridge Tea Rooms in Bradford on Avon, near Bath. Located in a centuries old building that has hosted various businesses over the years, these tea rooms offer the complete traditional cream tea or afternoon tea experience.

The Bridge Tea Rooms


On a recent visit on a cold winter's day, we ducked in through the door over the threshold into a welcoming haven of crackling fires, classical music and a selection of enticing cakes on the sideboard. We deliberated over the extensive loose leaf tea menu. My husband chose a Lapsang to go with his cream tea.

I decided on the Jane Austen blend, "a blend of China teas for a delicate slightly smoky taste", to accompany my Queen Victoria afternoon tea. Attentive staff dressed in Victorian period uniforms laid out the traditional china and tiered stands.

The tea was smokey as promised and the sandwiches, scone and cakes were delicious. We felt so warm and cosy by the fire after indulging that we didn't want to head back out into the cold day. But a stroll along the Avon in delightful Bradford on Avon was in order to walk off the treats of The Bridge Tea Rooms.



If you are a lover of tea and all things traditional, it is a must for your to-do list.
