As the UK marks Afternoon Tea Week, these are some of the best places in Liverpool to join in the celebrations, according to Tripadvisor

It’s Afternoon Tea Week this week, and despite the thermostat in Liverpool reaching unenviable levels, there’s always time for a spot of tea.

Be it the age-old argument of PG Tips versus Yorkshire Tea, if it’s jam and then clotted cream on a scone rather than vice versa or using a colour chart to determine how strong you want your tea, this week the UK celebrates the humble pre-dinner nibble.
