    7 Delicious Places To Eat In True Bake Off Style

    With the return of The Great British Bake Off to our screens it seems like the perfect time to showcase some of best places for you to eat all the cake your heart desires! Even better is that they aren’t too far from our parks!

    Tiny Tims Tearoom
    Location: Canterbury, Kent
    Nearest Park: Allhallows

    This delightful tea room located in the heart of Canterbury has a delicious range of cakes and baked goods for you to enjoy. They even have local specialities such as huffkins, puffkins and their very special plump pilgrim, which is hand made each morning. You can find this all alongside a fantastic selection of loose leaf teas. An extra fun fact for you is that this is actually the most haunted place in Canterbury, if you are feeling extra brave you should venture to the very top of the stairs.

    Victorian Tearoom
    Location: Cromer, Norfolk
    Nearest Park: Caister-on-Sea

    In the heart of Cromer, on the North Norfolk coast, you will find the enchanting Victorian Tearoom. Using locally sourced ingredients they make a range of home made delicious cakes and scones everyday. This is alongside their tasty collection of teas and coffees. It’s definitely on the top of my list when I’m next in Norfolk!

    Betty’s Stone Gate
    Location: York
    Nearest Park: Primrose Valley

    If you fancy a day out in York this is the perfect place to visit for a spot of cake, especially as it is situated in a listed building on medieval Stonegate. I am also reliably informed by our resident northerner, Helen, that the queue to get into this Betty’s is non-existent compared to its sister shop in St Helen’s Square.

    Quayside Tearoom
    Location: Lawrenny, South Wales
    Nearest Park: Kiln Park

    With an array of awards to their name the Quayside Tearoom in Lawrenny is the perfect place to not only enjoy some wonderful cakes and tea but also immerse yourself in the stunning Pembrokeshire National Park with it’s waterside setting. If you are also feeling a bit peckish for some local lobster and crab then this is definitely the place to head to.
