That delightful British institution, Afternoon Tea, has it's roots not a million miles from here. Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, experienced "that sinking feeling" during the late afternoon. At the time it was usual for people to have only two main meals a day, breakfast, and dinner at around 8 o'clock in the evening. The solution for the Duchess was a pot a tea with a little something, and afternoon tea was born.
Later friends were invited to join her in her rooms at Woburn Abbey for walks and tea. Other social hostesses quickly picked up on the idea and the practice became respectable enough to move it into the drawing room. Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
