After some research we have found out that afternoon tea is one of the most popular things brides choose to do. We have found two very beautiful and wonderful places that you could enjoy the day out with your friends. The first one is Browns Brasserie and Bar, which is based in Nottingham. Another one is the Belton Woods that is based in Belton. Both places serve beautiful and delicious afternoon tea and the drink includes, tea, coffee and of course, champagne!
