If you missed the two episodes of Victoria Wood’s ‘Nice Cup of Tea’, then I suggest you watch it on catch up before it’s too late.

It was a fascinating watch as Victoria travelled the globe to explore Britain’s love affair with tea. She visits the back streets of Kolkata and the mega city of Shanghai, where she sees the world of chai wallahs, opium smokers, Assam tea pickers and more.

She also heads to Britain’s Woburn Abbey, Blackpool and Harrogate where she learnt the real way to drink tea (slurp and spit). Of course it had to include a few celebrities who loved tea which included Graham Norton, Matt Smith and Morrissey.

Enjoy if you haven’t already watched it, make sure you brew your cuppa before you sit down to watch it or you will miss some of it when you pop out to make yourself a brew, BBC ONE Catch-up.



Tea Sign

There’s afternoon tea and there’s afternoon tea, but enjoying it while on the River Thames, has to be a bit special. So, with Mother’s Day coming up this month I guess it’s no surprise to find that a number of places are holding very special Afternoon Teas, just for Mums.

You could have it in the R.S.Hispaniola River Thames, which is permanently located alongside Victoria Embankment, the R.S. Hispaniola is a great place for a Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea treat. You can take Afternoon Tea in the stylish restaurant or out on the sun deck, where you can see fabulous view of the river, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament

Or try Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea Cruise, on the River Thames London. Why not treat your Mum to something very special this year – Afternoon Tea on the River Thames. Your Mum can enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea as she gazes at an endless stream of river front sights. Seeing London from the River Thames is an unforgettable way to view some of London’s best landmarks.

I can vouch for this as only last month we visited London to see our daughter and with the weather being poor we decided to take a boat from Westminster to Greenwich. It was a fabulous way to see all the sites along the river front.
