Every Sunday for the last few months, the Victoria and Albert Museum has been hosting a Victorian afternoon tea in their restaurant - of course I had to go. So a few Sundays ago, a friend and I went to sample the delights. I wish I could have gone in costume, but unfortunately my historical clothing wardrobe does not currently extend to Victorian day wear (I am hoping it will one day). Also walking in costume through central London is not fun at the best of times!
So here is the lovely reproduction china and the delicious food. Actually some of the food was interesting, but not quite my taste, but most of it was yummy. :)
Closeup of the food :)
The menu. every dish was made from a Victorian recipe.
Isn't this glass so pretty!
The tea was held in the original William Morris part of the cafe, so perfect location for a Victorian tea.
A few more pics of the decor.
