Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

Fresh scones, elegant sandwiches, clotted cream, cakes, preserves and jam, served with delicate, refreshing beverages. That’s the image the words ‘Afternoon Tea’ immediately bring to mind.

Perfect for relaxing with friends and family, or as a pick-me-up in the middle of a hectic day, this delightful meal is said to have been introduced by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford.

Today, this royal tradition is still honoured and upheld at the Burj Al Arab’s Sky View Bar, where guests can enjoy a freshly baked spread along with a selection of exotic teas and coffee or a glass of bubbly chilled on ice.
