Gwrych Castle – Mother’s Day Cream Tea

Since the 1800’s when Anna, Duchess of Bedford would soon become hungry, afternoon tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1800’s, aristocratic woman would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea and it became a great social event.
