Swansea is surrounded by diverse scenery, ranging from rocky cliffs to breath-taking seaside views and promenades, ancient ruins and ultra-modern city centre buildings. There is something for everyone, but when you get tired from the scenic walks and abundant natural beauty, it is suddenly time for afternoon tea. Afternoon tea in Swansea can be an interesting experience, as the city offers a variety of options, which would satisfy both Hyacinths and Susans alike.
Afternoon Tea at Morgans Hotel
Afternoon tea in the architecturally impressive Morgans Hotel is something to be remembered. Available daily from 15:00 – 18:00, this beauty, served on a black slate stand, can be enjoyed for a very reasonable £16.95, though you might want to consider the more expensive options which include a glass of Prosecco or a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne.
One of Morgans’ best features is the fact that you can just turn up to enjoy an afternoon tea, without the need for prior reservation. This award winning, aesthetically pleasing boutique hotel will cater for the most demanding of afternoon tea enthusiasts, with a desire to be surrounded by classy interiors and sophisticated clientele. As stated on the hotel’s website, high tea can also be adapted to cater for individual dietary needs.
Afternoon Tea at the Lounge
Have you ever had your afternoon tea from a picnic basket? Well, it is time we change this. Afternoon tea at The Lounge is not for the faint hearted, or the sworn traditionalists, yet it has style and substance in equal measures.
At £19.95 per person, this magnificent and satisfying afternoon tea is not the cheapest in town, however you get a lot for your money. Along the delicious sandwiches and clotted cream scones, one can enjoy a variety of teas and even a cheeky mocktail or a glass of bubbly.
If you are a romantic at heart, you will also be pleasantly surprised by the wonderful Swansea marina views surrounding you, while you are inelegantly stuffing your face with fancies and cream. If classic style and contemporary presentation is on the top of your list, then afternoon tea at The Lounge should be high in your list of priorities.
Afternoon Tea at Quay Three
If a sophisticated industrial and hip environment is what you are looking for, then afternoon tea at Quay Three will definitely satisfy your taste and your taste buds. Great deco, clean food accompanied by a romantic view of the marina, not much more you can ask for your afternoon cream tea, you will be forgiven if you mistook Quay Three for the French Riviera.
With locally sourced fresh produce this quirky afternoon tea is not to be taken lightly. Quay Three need you to provide them with 48 hours’ notice and a £5 deposit upon your booking, which is not entirely unreasonable, as everyone in town will be after that fabulous marina view. Some of the fantastic delicacies one can taste at the Quay Three include their famous rainbow cake, Welsh cakes and freshly baked scones.
