Tomorrow there's a whole day dedicated to the nation's favourite drink, so sipping an overly brewed cuppa in a Sports Direct mug with skimmed milk just won't cut the mustard.

 

To help you amp up your tea game, we tracked down the best afternoon tea packages all over the UK including Cloud 23 in Manchester and a castle in Scotland - and they're not as pricey as you may think.

 

There's no excuse quite like National Tea Day to treat yourself - and each of them will take you less than a minute to book.

 

London, £34

 

The British Museum hosts one of the finest afternoon tea in the capital, diners can munch on tasty treats like salt beef, cress and radish bagels, broccoli and cheddar tarts, Scottish smoked salmon and cucumber brioche, macaroons, raspberry and vanilla tart, and apricot and pistachio cake. Oh, and of course, Prosecco. Heavenly. Book via Groupon where the experience is currently half price (usually £50).

 

Alternatively, if you're looking for extravagance take mum on a trip to the Shard followed by afternoon tea at the Waldorf Hilton (a luxury hotel in London's vibrant West End) in this combination package of lavishness for £109 (usually £161.90) - it even comes complete with a harpist playing while you sip your exotic teas. 

 

Manchester, £37.90

Manchester's Hilton's Cloud 23 is renowned for being one of the top afternoon teas in the city, costing £12 for a cream tea, or £23 per person for the full afternoon tea without champagne and £33 with. You can book it via the Hilton website.

 

For something a little cheaper but with just as rave reviews, head to the 5* Radissson Blu Edwardian Manchester, who are offering afternoon tea for two for £37.90.

 

Nottingham, £39

Indulge in a selection of treats including sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries for £39, at Thoresby Hall, a magical 4* Warner Leisure hotel and stately home , situated on the edge of Sherwood Forest.

Liverpool, £35

For £35 you'll be presented with seasonally inspired open sandwiches and wraps, miniature cakes and delicious pastries.

 

Leeds, £79

Why stick to just tea when you could go all out with this sumptuous spa and cream tea package.

 

Burn off the calories after eating your fill of scones and jam with a dip in the Marriott Hotel 's pool, sweat it all out in the steam room, or relax in the jacuzzi. It's £79 for the tea and spa for both of you.

 

Essex, £39

 

Fill up on all your favourite sandwiches and patisseries while looking out onto blossom trees and sweeping lawns and dreamy landscaped gardens - for just £39 for two.

 

It's all happening at the Hallmark Hotel in Woodford Green - a Grade II Georgia mansion with its own chapel - for the best afternoon tea in Essex, then sit back, relax and pretend you're royalty for the day.

 

Belfast, Northern Ireland, £35

Revel in the popular British past time but with a stylish European flair at Patisserie Valerie in Belfast, renowned for its delicious sweet treats since 1926, including chocolate eclairs, carrot and walnut cakes, scones with clotted cream and smoked salmon sandwiches.

 

For £35 for two, you'll also get a take-home gift box filled with even more sweet treats.

 

South Ayrshire, Scotland, £35

For such a quintessentially British treat, there's no better place to enjoy afternoon tea than at the beautiful Glenapp castle, in South Ayrshire.

 

With a full selection of homemade sandwiches, cakes and other goodies included in their spread, the only thing that beats the cuisine is the views out across the Irish Sea and 36 acres of gorgeous gardens.

 

Snowdonia, Wales, £35

 

Nestled amidst Snowdonia National Park, the charming Victorian mansion that is now Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel is one of the most scenic spots in the country.
