Swap the Christmas party for afternoon tea with the girls

  • by IMAGE

Is there anything better than Christmas? We don't think so.

So much of what makes Christmas magical is the time you get to spend with your friends. Life moves quickly, and sometimes it's difficult to balance friends, family and all the other facets which make our daily lives tick. But at Christmas, it's as if time slows, and you can just meet the girls and relax.

The annual Christmas party will always be a merry stalwart but the reality is that there is always more than one. This slew of parties can be the cause of extra sore heads not to mention complete panic over what sparkly creation you can wear next. There are only so many Zara sequin dresses one can buy and only so many heels to walk in. Sometimes, all you want is a break from the Christmas crowds, fairy light filled restaurants and 'Rocking Around the Christmas Tree' repeats. However, there is an alternative.

Afternoon tea, for many, is a Christmas tradition. You are guaranteed that you and your friends will be treated like royalty, and each time is more special than the next. It's pure Christmas luxury at its best, indulging a little in delicious bite-sized snacks and perfectly brewed tea. Just what the doctor ordered on a crisp December afternoon. Not to mention the Instagram photo opportunities are boundless. Christmas means reuniting with old friends, pure happiness and enjoying some champagne. Afternoon tea will provide you with all those luxuries and more.

With all this in mind, afternoon tea at The Davenport Hotel  is a very welcome Christmas calendar entry.


The Davenport Hotel, which has been recently refurbished, is now offering an afternoon tea experience with a contemporary twist. You can enjoy a traditional afternoon tea or spice it up with their Laurent Perrier Champagne Tea. Christmas is the time to celebrate and treat yourself, and we can't think of a better way to do just that.

And because it's nearly Christmas (and at Christmas we are extra nice) we are giving away the chance for you and three of your friends to feel like queens and enjoy a Laurent Perrier Afternoon Tea at the Davenport.
