Win! Win! Win! Afternoon Tea for Four at The Shard with Buyagift - An Alternative Hen Party Experience

Win! Win! Win! Afternoon Tea for Four at The Shard with Buyagift – An Alternative Hen Party Experience

September 24, 2013  |  Competition, Giveaway, Inspiration

If you’ve seen the Let the Eat Cake Posts in the land Beyond Beyond then you are more than aware that we are consummate cake addicts and profligate tea drinkers up in here!

So, we with the help of Buyagift we are going to let one of you enjoy an afternoon tea trip for four at The Shard, London, as an alternative Hen Party Treat!

 We all know that there is the option of going on a bar crawl; however there is something about afternoon tea that has a little bit more sophistication – and it is a great way to say ‘Hello Marriage’ celebration in this absolutely jaw dropping location.

For that reason we are making it possible for one lucky Beyond Beyond reader to enjoy a pre-wedding treat of Afternon Tea for Four at the Shard  (or you might want to be nice and let the Groom tag along too); or well it could be the boys who want to go and enjoy one of the tallest buildings in Europe with a brew in one hand a cucumber sandwich in the other? We think that the hangover has acted as a cautionary tale for men worldwide about what could go wrong on stag night – so maybe something more sedate works for all of you.


Whoever and however you want to use this pre-wedding treat the choice is yours – if you are interested in afternoon tea experiences be sure to visit Buyagift who are the generous sponsors of this prize.  It’s not only about urban sprawls – there are serene little countryside enclaves when you can get your tea and cake fix.
