We can’t decide which is the best sound in the world: a cup of tea being poured or the gentle hiss of Champagne bubbles fizzing to the surface of a chilled flute.
Enjoy both with today’s Big Deal on a Champagne afternoon tea in the opulent surrounds of the Carlton Hotel on Edinburgh’s North Bridge.
Right in the heart of the capital, The Carlton Hotel is easily accessible and, for anyone who really wants to make a day of it, close to the shops of George Street, not to mention Harvey Nicks.
Champagne afternoon tea
This stunning Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a magnificent champagne afternoon tea at The Carlton.
The four star hotel is an Edinburgh landmark and its afternoon tea is appropriately swish. Guests will be served dainty finger sandwiches; delicious scones with jam and cream; delightful cakes, tea or coffee and, of course, a glass of chilled champagne.
This Big Deal would make a great day out for a couple or indeed a doting daughter or son keen to earn some Brownie points. It would also be appreciated as a Christmas gift.
There is no shortage of fun things to do in Edinburgh city centre. As well as the shopping opportunities already mentioned, iconic attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood and the Royal Mile are all within easy walking distance.
On a more seasonal note, Edinburgh’s Christmas festivities and Hogmanay celebrations will be underway during the validity of this offer. Afternoon tea with a glass of champers would be a great way to warm up after browsing, say, the nearby German Christmas market.
