This morning we had the plan of visiting coffee shop no.20 on our coffee tour, but it was shut! So gutted! Does this mean we won't be able to finish our tour!? It would be pathetic to say we did 20 out of 21, so Twin Cafe, you better be open tomorrow! 

So we ended up sitting in the Peace Gardens, enjoying the sun and eating some Proper Pastys! So not all bad in the end! 


The bus to Chatsworth left the Interchange in the City Centre at 2 and took 45 mins, which gave us plenty of time before our Afternoon Tea booking at 3.30. The last time we came here was in the winter so it was much busier today! There were lots of events going on and it was generally a much busier place! Although it has been great to see this beautiful part of the world in all the seasons! 

After a disappointing afternoon tea in London last time out, and never having one in Sheffield, we decided to come here and with big expectations! And we are glad to say they were met and surpassed! 


The service and atmosphere were spot on, and each part of the afternoon tea was super yummy! It was also just right in terms of portion size, even though we thought it looked fairly small to begin with.

We decided to experiment with the teas which came as part of it, Jessica choosing a Chinese tea, whilst I chose a peach flavoured one - both lovely and regularly topped up by our waitress.  

The buses aren't too regular on Sundays so we have some time to chill on the grass outside surrounded by the lambs whilst I write this blog post up!
