The Queen's Platinum Jubilee is just around the corner and what better way to get you in the swing of things than enjoying a terribly British afternoon tea?

Cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off, Victoria sponge cake, scones with jam and clotted cream, all washed down with a lovely pot of tea - items which, naturally, should be consumed with your little finger raised at all times.

If you want to raise a cuppa to the Queen, or you just feel like treating yourself to a tower of tasty treats, we've turned to Tripadvisor to find the best places serving up the traditional fare, according to reviews left by the people who have been there.
