How do you pronounce Scone? Currants or no currants? These are the important decisions in life as part of a wonderful #BeeProud Manchester Afternoon Tea.

Radisson Blu Edwardian is proud to bee a part of Manchester’s vibrant community. Based in the city’s iconic Free Trade Hall, the hotel brings award-winning 5-star luxury to the buzzing city centre.

We are proud to share proceeds of our afternoon tea sales with the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund launched in partnership with the British Red Cross and the Manchester Pride Charity supporting the LGBT community. 

It is the perfect setting in which to partake of afternoon tea. Served by friendly, attentive staff, the delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes were brought to us on an elegant, traditional, three tier cake-stand; what else would suffice in such glorious surroundings? Helped down by lashings of loose leaf English Breakfast Tea, it was utter perfection. 

Good news too if you like more sweet than savoury or visa versa, just ask your server to prioritise accordingly. They are happy to oblige.
