Afternoon tea is one of Britain’s greatest pleasures, and there’s no better excuse for treating yourself – and the woman who raised you – to an elegant day out for Mother’s Day.

The good news is that you won’t need to break the bank for a seriously decadent tea time, as you can easily find package deals for iconic venues and beautiful locations across the UK.

Choose from a Mad Hatters feast in an Alice and Wonderland themed tea in London, high tea in the Highlands or a glitzy affair at a Michellin-star restaurant.
