With the highly anticipated Season 2 of Bridgerton airing on Netflix today, one Belfast Hotel is helping fans feel part of the drama.
Guests of the 5-star Culloden Estate and Spa in Belfast are being invited to experience the splendour of high society with a scandalously decadent Bridgerton-inspired afternoon tea in the hotel’s stunning setting overlooking Belfast Lough.
Such a treat seems fitting for a hotel that’s part of the luxury Hastings Hotels group. And it may even be the perfect last-minute Mother’s Day gift.
The afternoon tea experience promises to tickle your tastebuds with a demi-tasse of soup (a small cup to you or me), followed by elegant finger sandwiches, warm buttermilk scones with lashings of clotted cream and a sumptuous array of pastries and cakes – all served in fine bone crockery laid out on a suitably dressed antique table.
Along with the finest selection of speciality teas and coffees, guests can add a glass of champagne to enhance the experience.
And if you’re feeling especially audacious you can partake in Lady Whistledown’s Gossipy Gimlet cocktail – cleverly disguised in a teacup to avoid any scandal.
Dressing up for such a sanctimonious occasion is optional but will not be frowned upon.
The Bridgerton-inspired afternoon tea costs from £35 per person.
Afternoon tea gift cards are also available from the Hastings Hotels website and could be the perfect last-minute Mother’s Day gift:
