Winter is coming, people. And there's no better way to warm up than with a good cream tea. But wait a minute. Perhaps there is. Why not warm up with a Game of Thronesstyleafternoon tea? There are some seriously decent GoT inspired afternoon teas on offer across the UK to suit everyone, whether you belong to the House of Stark or Lannister. So seriously, get involved.
Obviously, the place to go for anything GoT related is Northern Ireland, as this is where the bulk of the series is filmed. And there are plenty of wonderful tours to undertake of actual filming locations. But if you'd prefer to stay in England, you're not outta luck. You'd be surprised at the secrets the UK holds when it comes to castles that have got definite GoT feels to them.
I mean, have you been to Tintagel in Cornwall? It's said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, but could easily have been the birth place of Cersei Lannister too. To be honest, it's a surprise that it was never used as a filming location in GoT.
Anyway, with the right amount of imagination, these castles will have you feeling like you're living your best life in Westeros in no time. Couple that with an afternoon tea fit for a mythical royal, and you'll have an experience you'll never forget.
Get those swords ready and hold onto your dragons, because here are seven afternoon teas to satisfy all your Game of Thrones needs.
