Today, due to other obligations, I am missing out on tea with my ladies. So it seemed appropriate to post these pictures from our last visit, taken before Christmas. I met my dear friends at Seaham Hall in County Durham for Afternoon Tea. There are some lovely places in the North East of England to go for tea, we are very spoiled for choice. It's a beautiful place serving delicious food. And I couldn't help but take some shots of my friends' accessories too.

I just adore your pictures! I wish my Sunday had something this glamorous lined up but instead it will be a day of dying my hair and cleaning my flat!

Such a gorgeous location! And the perfect food to match... I was practically drooling at the cakes and shortbreads. The only thing more delectable is that beautiful Chanel purse...

This looks delicious, I love seeing the photos of all the interesting places you go for tea and cake around Northern England and further a field.

Hope you manage to see your friends again soon and you have more photos to share with us!

Thank you so much, that really means a lot to me. Me and my mum are really lucky because the owners gave us life time passes for the spa, so I'm lucky enough to visit really often! You have a beautiful blog btw, one of my favorites! :)
