The East Midlands is a large region consisting of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire (excluding the North and North East), Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland.
Places to get an Afternoon Tea in the East Midlands include Derby, Leicester, Lincoln, Mansfield, Northampton and Nottingham. This, of course, is to name but a few. There are many more waiting to be discovered from the list below.
Historically, much of the region was the territory of the Corieltauvi tribe many hundreds of years ago. When the Romans invaded, they made Leicester (then known as Ratae Corieltauvorum) one of their primary forts, while the main town was Lincoln.
Centuries later, the East Midlands corresponded to the Five Boroughs of the Danelaw, and the eastern half of the Anglian Kingdom of Mercia. During the English Civil War, it was the site of two significant skirmishes: the 1643 Battle of Winceby and the 1645 Battle of Naseby.
Many notable people have come from the East Midlands, including Sir Isaac Newton, Sir J.M. Barrie and both Sir David and Sir Richard Attenborough. Nowadays, however, the area has also acquired a reputation for containing dozens of Afternoon Tea East Midlands establishments.
