The Lowry Hotel
The Lowry 'is really very cool and chic and, in summer, you can take tea on the sunny terrace,' suggests Georgina. 'It's a lovely place to enjoy a delicious, classic afternoon tea.' Get there between 3pm and5pmfor finger sandwiches, cakes and an impressive choice of teas, from a refreshing Earl Grey to an exotic-sounding Organic Downy Tip Green Mao Jian.
