Experience the exquisite British afternoon tea

"In classic British film and television works such as "Downton Abbey" and "Sherlock", we can always see people enjoying a leisurely afternoon while avoiding the heat in the bright sunshine, sipping a cup of afternoon tea by the window. Such scenes make people yearn for it. Here are a few recommended classic afternoon tea shops in Birmingham, where you can also taste traditional British afternoon tea and experience the British style in a foreign land."

Patisserie Valerie

Patisserie Valerie is a well-known chain of tea and cake shops in various cities in the UK. They offer a wide variety of cakes, such as black forest cake, strawberry tart, and cream cake, all with unique flavors and aromas. Local residents often book cakes from here to celebrate festivals and special occasions. In addition to cakes, their afternoon tea is also worth trying, with a two-person set including tea and various pastries. The shop also serves main meals, such as bread with eggs for breakfast and roasted duck for lunch.
