It’s time for tea in one of England’s most iconic teashops. Bettys has been serving high-class brews and dainty treats to the gentry ever since 1919.
Afternoon tea doesn’t come any more traditional than at the original Bettys Tea Rooms in Harrogate. Opened almost a century ago by Swiss confectioner Frederick Belmont, the café transports you back to a time of high society and painstaking elegance.
From the outside, the café is all wrought iron canopies, hanging baskets and elaborate window displays overlooking the Montpellier Gardens. Inside, polished wood and glass displays are filled with mouth-watering treats, while staff in period dress wheel gleaming trolleys and a pianist often plays in the background.
Order afternoon tea for a tiered cake stand filled with finger sandwiches, miniature cakes and still-warm scones. Or try a plate of local speciality Yorkshire Fat Rascals. And of course, there is a long list of speciality teas and coffees to choose from.
Betty’s is in the heart of Harrogate, 200 miles (322km) north of London.
