This foliage-adorned haven of baked goods is ready and waiting for you to join it for one of its famous afternoon teas. Head over to the Mermaid Quay beaut for freshly baked scones smothered in clotted cream and lashings of jam, as well as finger sandwiches and lots of little cakes.

For a touch of luxury, nab yourself an afternoon tea at Hilton Cardiff. While in stylish surrounds, shovel triple-layered sarnies, decadent desserts and a themed Welsh cake down your gob, then chase it all with premium hot drinks or fun cocktails.
