What do they all have in common?
Today, Americans are obsessed with the English culture. In 2011, around 23 million US viewers tuned in to watch the Royal Wedding of Kate and Prince William. There’s no telling how many West Tennesseans flocked from around the area to try to get a glimpse of Prince William and Prince Harry, while they were in Memphis for a friend’s wedding.
London maybe too far away from Memphis at 4,362 miles or 10 1/2 hours by flight, but there is a chance for us to indulge in some of their culture. From 4-6PM (no not happy hour), in London is afternoon Tea Time, where you may enjoy a spot of tea (in an English accent), and a scone with clotted cream and jam. Are your taste buds tingling? No need to spend over $1,000 for a flight to the GB, but there are places were you can enjoy this tradition right in your backyard. This is an activity that all ages can enjoy and possibly see a “princess” too. So take a break, relax and enjoy a crumpet or two, because “Darling, it’s Tea Time.”
