Afternoon Tea at the Empress is an Event . . . as it is pricey . .. best to be savoured for special occasions. We had had this experience once before and it was delightful. That was the last time we had been to visit the Island, so our 45th Anniversary Anniversary was one we should celebrate with gusto. My belief is that from now on all anniversaries should be celebrated and not just wait for the every five years markers.
We had the full meal deal and it was a leisurely afternoon. In fact, we were so full from the tea that we cancelled our dinner reservations and went for an evening walk instead.
