National Afternoon Tea Week in Leeds

We’re quite partial to an Afternoon Tea, and with it being Afternoon Tea Week from today until 13th August, we wanted to let you know our top five spots to hit for an alternative Afternoon Tea this week in Leeds City Centre!

Who said an Afternoon Tea had to be quintessentially British? Take a look into an Italian twist on the British classic.

With arancini, pizza and even a spot of Tiramisu for dessert, it would be hard to say no to this delicious platter of Italian delicacies!

Book a table for Afternoon Tea at LIVIN’Italy here.



Enjoy a shopping trip at Victoria Gate, followed by a delicious Japanese Afternoon Tea at Issho Rooftop Bar.

With a selection of Japanese teas, sushi rolls and even a twist (on arguably the most important part), Issho boast their very own recipe; Matcha Scone with Yuzu Clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam.

Just Grand! Vintage Tea Rooms

We’re giving you an 8-in-1 option here, Just Grand Vintage Tea Rooms offer eight, yes, eight Afternoon Tea’s to choose from.

Pick from their Caribbean, Gluten-Free, or even Seafood Afternoon Tea, and that’s only three of them! Each is so wonderfully unique, but for those who would rather stick to the traditional, don’t worry - they’ve got you covered.

Grand Pacific at The Queens Hotel

Treat yourself to a ‘High Tea’ at Grand Pacific, where they have a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic Afternoon Tea selections to suit any occasion.

With a mouthwatering choice of both savoury and sweet options, we think we would be most excited about the ‘White Chocolate & Strawberry Profiterole’.

The Soap Factory

If you’re looking for cool vibes and a relaxing atmosphere, head to The Soap Factory for their Traditional Afternoon Tea.

We thought this fully deserved a spot on the list for its cosmopolitan feel - elevating your Afternoon Tea experience to city lifestyle!
