After a number of unsuccessful attempts to find somewhere to have afternoon tea today, we suddenly had the brain-wave to visit the Tea Terrace in the House of Fraser in Guildford. It’s been years since I have been there. In fact my husband had a job convincing me that we had been there before.
The Tea Terrace is situated on the fifth floor of the department store, and the view looking up from the ground floor is spectacular. Each of the floors has lights cascading over the balcony edges.
I am not a fan of tea but I love the tradition and the rigmarole. The best bit about it, is the cake or more especially the scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
