You know I travel far and wide to sample afternoon tea so a 250 mile car journey to Stoke on Trent to try out the gluten free afternoon tea at World of Wedgwood Tea Room seemed like a ride in the park.  I was in Staffordshire to tick off another county in my New Years Resolution challenge and it felt like an age since G and I both had afternoon tea together.

Why not read my review of the gluten free afternoon tea at World of Wedgwood Tea Rooms in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire; the county is home to the potteries so make sure you pick up a tea cup and saucer on your travels...warning the images will make you drool!

I should warn you right now…you really need to water the money tree prior to visiting the World of Wedgwood as you’ll want to buy everything!

Sandwiches

Let’s start with the gluten free sarnies, the bread was soft and fluffy albeit a tad cold from sitting in a chiller…this happens everywhere.  The fillings included ham, egg, smoked salmon, cucumber and coronation chicken; all the classic fillings you would expect.

If I’m really honest (which I am), I did find the filling a little bland for my liking unfortunately.

Scones

Ahhh gluten free scones…the nemesis of so many pastry chefs!  I wasn’t too sure what to expect however they passed my scone test with flying colours (they were easy to cut into, they didn’t break a tooth and they were yummy).

The scones were served warm and were light and fluffy…better than a lot of scones that you find in London at the really posh hotels that charge twice the price for afternoon tea!

If there was one thing letting the scone team down it was the jam…it felt cheap and nasty i.e. no taste at all which was slight disappointing.

Pastries

The pastries included a beautiful gluten free mini victoria sponge filled with fresh cream…it was divine…traditional but spot on for an afternoon tea pastry.

A gluten free chocolate brownie which was thick and gooey…you know I’m not a fan of brownies however I did take two bites rather than the normal one before passing onto G to finish the brownie off.  The lucky last pastry was a chocolate basket filled with mousse which was delightfully light.

Tea

I went for the Empress Catherine tea; I’m not sure what is wrong with me at the moment however I can’t drink hot drinks so ended up enjoying a very cold glass of water with lemon.  Our tea wasn’t refreshed during the afternoon tea experience.

The Wedgwood Tea Room is simply gorgeous; on Sunday there were only two couples enjoying afternoon tea…and one of them was us!

Honestly, the photos don’t do the tea rooms justice…the colours and design made me want to pinch the mirrors off the walls…and lust over wallpaper (which has never happened in my life before!).

Afternoon Tea for the Gluten Eating Monsters

So G’s world scone rankings had a shake up after our afternoon tea at World of Wedgwood…the gluten loaded scones knocked Claridge’s from their long held second place ranking…and G is a scone connoisseur so this is HUGE news.  (Current Scone Rankings as per G: 1st place, Grande Bretagne in Athens; 2nd place, World of Wedgwood and 3rd place, Claridge’s).

Like me, G thought the afternoon tea was extremely good value but was disappointed over the jam situation.  I think it can be safely assumed that he enjoyed his mini lemon meringue pie and the Victoria sponge as there was of moaning…in a good way!

Service

The service was very relaxed and friendly.

Would I recommend the Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at World of Wedgwood Tea Room, Stoke on Trent – Definitely! We purchased an afternoon tea package which included afternoon tea for two persons, entry into the museum and the factory tour for £49 which I think is amazing value.  The afternoon tea alone is worth £25pp so prebook and grab this deal if you can.  You can find more information on the afternoon tea here.

The Tea Room was very quiet on Sunday and I was told that it’s very busy during the week so if you want a relaxing afternoon tea in Staffordshire then highly recommending popping in for scones and tea during the weekend.

My Life Goal, ze Weight

Hey hey weight gain…I was expecting you…I found those two small kids I thought that I had picked up while travelling in America again.

Shake Your Booty

Done nada…I’m hoping that a new week will be the inspiration needed especially as I can breathe properly, FINALLY!  Daddy gave us all a stonker of a cold…I coughed this week and put my neck out AGAIN.  I think it’s fair to say that I’m currently in the wars…that’s what the girls at work keep telling me.  When you’re down you’re down!

The Peninsula in Pink

Last year we stayed at The Peninsula in Hong Kong and absolutely loved it (you know I’m a fan of iconic hotels plus the service level was out of this world!)…they really looked after G and I on our visit especially when it came to my gluten intolerance.

So I wanted to share with you what The Peninsula Hotels’ are doing in October to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research…I will get behind anything to do with cancer research.

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 38, 2016 Peninsula in Pink Campaign

Chinese-born artist Chen Man has created thought-provoking pieces of art  (the mark is gradually scratched off using traditional Chinese Nao Nao sticks) which will be showcased in all of the ten Peninsula cities around the world which are: Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, New York, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Bangkok, Manila and Paris.

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 38, 2016 Peninsula in Pink Campaign

This is the 6th year that The Peninsula in Pink campaign has been running and so far over £600,00 has been raised for breast cancer charities around the world so if you’re in a Peninsula city then make sure you pop in to check it out!

What I’m Up Too…

So once again I was going to try to head up to Harewood House but due to people doing exercise (it’s the weekend people…eat cake…exercise during the week!) there were some road closures…this shouldn’t have bothered me too much but as I was only doing a day trip I thought I would miss it and do it another weekend.  G and I ventured up to Stoke on Trent today instead for afternoon tea (ummm let’s just say it was a 250 mile round trip…but Claridge’s scones are now officially ranked second in the world by G and he’s eaten a lot of scones!) plus we checked out the potteries…we did this years ago and I always said I would return which we have and I’m glad we did as it’s changed so much!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 38, 2016

^^If you’re looking for loafers then I can’t recommend these babies from Russell and Bromley enough…expensive but oh so comfy even for wide feet!

Exciting home stuff…all the wallpaper is finally gone in the shoe room (my humidifier worked wonders making the room into a steam room hence the wallpaper was falling off the walls…success, but I did end up with a crap load of glue from the 1960’s in my hair!)…so next step is to get Paul the Plasterer in to sort out the walls and then paint the room…I am kinda excited to say the least as I’m going to use the third bedroom as a shoe room / office.

I finally got to see the new Bridget Jones movie and loved it!  I loved the scene about integrity going out of fashion…I ended up buying the sound track today from amazon…I’ll add this to my Ricky, Taylor and Tom selection.

I started this blog post last night and then got distracted…probably by food…I really can’t remember…oh I may have made myself an ice cream float and just never returned…oh I ended up folding the washing as well…blog post vs clean clothes…my priorities have changed so much recently.

Anyway that’s me…so what’s all the gossip?

There were two cities on my rather long England Bucket List that I longed to visit…one was Liverpool (visited way back in February..or was in March, I forget!) and the other was Chester!  Thank heavens for having a weird and wonderful New Years Resolution to visit every county as it’s making me tick off places from my very long list.  Strangely, both were rather a toddle to get to once I realised I could catch a super fast train with Virgin Trains ex Milton Keynes.

Getting a rumbly tummy as I hadn’t had breakfast and well I had walked more than 1,000 steps (that’s what my phone told and that’s the story I’m sticking with)...I decided to take the next lot of steps down and explore the city centre but not before capturing the first autumn leaves in Chester…

Seriously if your boy doesn’t like to travel and only wants to sit inside a pub; take him to Chester, there are so many pubs that you will see enough of Chester just by going on a mid morning pub crawl.

Now not to shock you, I travel without a clue of knowing what I’m about to see (I had no idea about Petra until I visited Jordan years ago on a tour…it was a wonderful surprise trust me!)…so I was kinda surprised to see a river in Chester…

My only research was finding out about gluten free cake (and there is nothing wrong about only checking out the gluten free options!) and found myself at the Mad Hatters Tea Rooms in Chester which offers…you guessed…

I found myself a boat and waited…there was a band playing in the band stand which was another of those special moments in Chester…

One last stop before heading back to Milton Keynes on the train was to visit the Chester Roman Amphitheatre which was more of a mural than anything else (more excavation needs to be done) however they are trying to save the site from developers…

…it’s so sad to think that this could all disappear one day and be located under a car park or office block.

I can’t thank everyone enough who pushed me to visit Chester…it was totally worth it and I would happily return again and again!  If you’re undecided about visiting the city, just book it and go…it’s a great day out in England and one of the most magical spots I’ve ever visited in the country.

Travel Tips for Chester

  • Instead of driving to Chester, catch Virgin Trains – my ticket ex Milton Keynes cost less than £40 and probably saved me at least 2 hours travelling time…if there is a group of you travelling then book via Virgin Trains as they offer a group discount unlike Red Spotted Hanky.  The train station is a short walk from the main centre.
  • I highly recommend visiting Mad Hatters Tea Room for gluten free food when in Chester.
  • There is great shopping in Chester…be prepared to get side tracked on your travels
  • Walking around the city walls is free and a great way to see the city…and a great spot to get a few instagram photos!
  • I jumped on the ChesterBoat 30 minute river cruise  on the River Dee that cost £7 pp (cheaper if bought online or you can pay by cash or card on boarding) and if you have a bit of time on your hands then why not catch the 2 hour river cruise down to Ironbridge.  If you want to take photos then I would recommend sitting on the left hand side of the boat to get the best views.
  • Chester Cathedral asks for a £3 donation on entry
  • Take flat comfortable walking shoes with you as you walk the entire city
  • If you want more information about exploring Chester then check out the official Visit Chester website here.

You know me, I love a good castle hunting expedition…or so I thought!  All the photos I’d seen of Warwick Castle had me weak at the knees so when I decided to visit Warwickshire, Warwick Castle seemed a no brainer however it was exploring Warwick itself that had me smiling.

I arrived early at Warwick Castle (way before opening time!); strangely the night before when I was finally doing some research, I read that the castle could be a bit hit or miss for folks.  Warwick Castle is part of Merlin Entertainment that runs The Dungeons, Madame Tussauds and Thorpe Park to name a few…this should have caused the warning bells to start along with the eye watering ticket price…£25.20 if bought on the day (which I stupidly did!)…my advice…don’t visit this castle if you love castles and only visit if you hold a Merlin Pass!

I’m going to say it right at the start, I personally think Warwick Castle is England’s most overrated and overpriced tourist attraction that I’ve ever visited!

As the castle wasn’t open, I decided to wander into Warwick, the town itself is only a few moments away…it’s rather cute…full of cheerful bunting…

^^I’m going to put it out there…photographing wobbly buildings isn’t easy!

In my rush to leave the house early, I didn’t have breakfast so I thought it was perfectly reasonably to have afternoon tea at the Thomas Oken Tea Rooms for breakfast…at 10am…since we’re all friends, let’s just call it morning tea (and I wonder why I’m fat…porridge vs a tiered cake stand…hmmm let’s see which one I would choose!)…

…the castle is magnificent from the outside however be prepared for lots of little people…you know the ones…they run wild and push to get you out of the way (I got pushed in the fanny area twice by the group of kids speaking Spanish and my feet where stood on by the English speaking ones)...you can start to see one reason why I didn’t enjoy Warwick Castle…

The castle has had a major refurbishment and it does look good from the outside however I found the interior to be…TACKY…strangely quite a few people agreed with this statement when I posted about it on instagram after my visit…

I totally get that they have turned Warwick Castle into an English version of Disneyland (and to be fair I visited Disneyland last week and I didn’t find it anywhere near as tacky as Warwick Castle so that says something!)...they have dumbed things down for the kids and it’s very focussed towards families which is perfectly fine to get kids into learning about history etc…BUT DID YOU NEED TO WRECK A BEAUTIFUL CASTLE TO DO THIS!

There are some lovely areas in the castle, don’t get me wrong…

…I did feel like I was getting herded around the castle and left in under 45 minutes…that’s how much I didn’t enjoy my visit.  I was hoping to have a wander around to take in the views like this one from the bedroom window but everything was blocked off!

Even seeing King Henry VIII didn’t cheer me up…and you know how much I love this naughty ol’ King…he would be on my “who would you have at your dinner party list, dead or alive”…King Henry VIII and Julie Andrews without a doubt…and thinking about things now, my family and as many of my ancestors that we could find…I normally cook enough to feed an army anyway…learning about history including your own family history is so important.

Okay so I didn’t love Warwick Castle however I did think Warwick was super cute and I had an extremely yummy afternoon tea at Thomas Oken Tea Rooms.  I think I would head back to Warwickshire at some point in the future as I definitely picked the wrong place to explore this county; where would you recommend?

Travel Tips for Warwickshire

  • I can’t recommend the Thomas Oken Tea Rooms in Warwick enough for their gluten free options, pop in for a visit and you won’t be disappointed.
  • Take time to wander around Warwick as it’s a sweet little town with plenty of wobbly buildings to enjoy
  • If you plan to visit Warwick Castle then look at finding discounted ticket prices or purchasing a Merlin Pass or book well in advance (do not pay £25.20 at the gate for entrance like me!)…it’s not a cheap day out.  You can buy tickets online in advance which are cheaper – do this 5+ days in advance to get the best deal. 
  • Take flat comfortable shoes as there is some climbing to do around the castle
  • There is plenty of parking at Warwick Castle
  • If you want to spend a night at a castle then I would highly recommend staying at Thornbury Castle in Gloucestershire rather than at Warwick Castle; it’s totally worth it to be princess for a night!
  • You can read more about Warwickshire at the official website.
