Afternoon tea always consists of three tiers, and the bottom tier is the first stop. It's filled with savory sandwiches and wraps. Think egg, salmon and spinach, and, of course, a traditional cream cheese and cucumber sandwich!
No afternoon tea is complete without delicious, freshly baked scones. Topped with jam and cream - and in some cases today lemon curd - they're the quintessential English treat.
The best bit! The top tier is filled with everything and anything sweet. From raspberry tarts to macaroons and strawberry Eton mess, it's a sugar lover's dream.
No English afternoon tea is complete without a pot of, well, tea. These days there are a host to choose from, although English Breakfast will always be a favourite. And if you're keen to indulge a little more than normal, a glass of champagne is also perfectly acceptable. The Queen however, has her own drink of choice - a gin and dubonnet!
