More afternoon tea - at Betty's Tea Room !

Oh my goodness what a great way to start my trip to Harrogate.A nice trouble free journey here- then a leisurely walk in the sun across the park up to Bettty's Tea Rooms which - I hasten to add was as nice as 'The Ritz' (I'm such a name dropper) We thought it was weird the way the two have been one week apart,so we can make a fair comparison !



Betty's is beautiful and cosy inside,the inside walls have beautiful marquetry pictures all the way round.


We had the 3 tier stand with open sandwiches on the bottom,scones in the middle and cakes on the top.
I am a real  lover of mazripan and when they bought one of the cakes up I thought i'd died and gone to heaven......a marzipan cauliflower with sponge inside....
I'm still trying to work out  how to get these photos to be more together - side by side,sorry!....I'm really looking forward to Tim's class tomorrow...hope we're allowed to do photos - and I hope those boys are keeping the place tidy and looking after Archie at home!
