Cream Tea has become a tradition throughout the UK and may possibly even date back to the 11th century. Rather than merely celebrate Afternoon Tea week (usually in August each year), The Beaufort offers a complimentary Cream Tea to every guest during each and every day of their stay.
To allow more people to sample this tradition, the hotel is running a Twitter competition every month to win complimentary Cream Tea for two at the boutique hotel with no obligation to stay. To find out how to enter, keep reading…
Staying at The Beaufort leaves no shortage of places to explore whether you want to stay in the area or make use of Knightsbridge or South Kensington stations to get pretty much anywhere in town. You could take a leisurely stroll to Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace Gardens or Kensington Gardens, visit the many Museums, Galleries and Theatres or get your Christmas shopping done on Sloane Street, Oxford Street or even visit Harrods a 5 minute walk away. But whatever you do, make sure you’re back at the hotel in time for your complimentary Cream Tea!
Served between 3pm-5pm, Cream Tea at The Beaufort gives you the chance to relax after a tiring day of shopping and sightseeing or the chance to refuel before heading out again. It includes homemade scones made by the owners’ own recipe together with Thursday Cottage handmade strawberry jam and thick Cornish clotted cream.
The only decisions are just how much jam and cream to use and which tea you would like to enjoy along with it; English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Green, Peppermint, Darjeeling or Chamomile. Guests staying at the hotel can even choose whether to have their tray served in the lounge area or if preferred, in their own room.
If you have been thinking about visiting Knightsbridge, why not enter the hotel’s Twitter competition for the chance to win a complimentary Cream Tea for two?
