Eastern England (also recognised as the East of England) is a region consisting of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Each county offers several outstanding places to get an Afternoon Tea in Eastern England.
These include Bedford, Luton, Basildon, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Chelmsford and Cambridge. Yet this, of course, is to name but a few. There are, indeed, many other locations to indulge in all of your favourite treats and snacks. Why not find out for yourself today?
The history of Eastern England is, put simply, remarkable. It was here that the oldest evidence of early humans outside of Africa, known as Homo antecessor, was unearthed – dating back nearly 900,000 years!
Many millennia later, in 1381, the Peasants’ Revolt led by Wat Tyler began in Essex. Eastern England, particularly the Cambridgeshire town of Huntingdon, was also the birthplace of the iconic English Civil War figure Oliver Cromwell.
In Suffolk in 1865, Elizabeth Garret Anderson became the first qualified female doctor in Britain. Just over one hundred years later, in 1967, Norwich became the first main town in the UK to be pedestrianised.
Now, the entire area boasts dozens upon dozens of outstanding Afternoon Tea Eastern England establishments – all of which are well worth visiting.
