Teacups and Vintage: The Royal Albert Tea Tour


Royal Albert ‘had at me tea’ but throw in the words ‘vintage’, ‘cupcakes’ and ‘free’ and the perfect line-up for a weekend chill day is complete. Quite simply, it’s always great to find something budget-friendly, fun and fashionable to do in London and the Royal Albert Tea Tour serves up just the right offering.

With the super-chic tagline “no one owns florals like Royal Albert,” expect gorgeous tea sets emblazoned with beautiful blooms and dainty dots that beautifully reflect over 100 years of cherished heritage, mixed in with a cool slick of modern vintage for the style conscious. Taking the very essence of afternoon teas to stylish new heights over the next few weekends, the Royal Albert Tea Tour dishes out thirst-quenching tea, yummy sweet treats and colour-pop macaroons from a pretty vintage van that mirrors the rise in pop-up shops and boutiques – amping up a blank open workspace to something far more quirky and unique.

Perfect for fashionistas wanting to rock a retro vibe, any girls who come along to the event can also get their hair styled up into a pin-up inspired look, before grabbing a playful prop for Instagram-ready snaps. Not just aesthetically and tummy pleasing, this year the tour is also raising money for Breast Cancer Care by collecting donations at the event and by other means.
