Afternoon Tea At Cloud 23


I’m a poet and I did know it. Haha.

After wanting to go to the Hilton Hotel’s Cloud 23 for afternoon tea for ages, my friend and I finally decided to go. Everything from the interior to the food was just gorgeous and we took lots of pictures on the day, so I thought I’d share them here with you guys.

We had the Vegetarian Traditional Afternoon Tea, which comprised of a handful of sweet treats, including lemon meringues, chocolate brownies and more and some savoury foods, which included cheese and onion sandwiches and more. There was also scones with jam and clotted cream.



Included in the afternoon tea was our choice of either tea, coffee or hot chocolate and we both decided to have the White Hot Chocolate which tasted absolutely delicious. It really tasted like that Milky Bar chocolate that we all loved as kids.


Overall, it tasted delicious, however the view wasn’t as nice as it could have been, really, as the sun was barely out. Also, because of the fact that we went at around 2pm, of course it would have been so much better if we had gone when the sun was setting. Man. Can you imagine how nice that would have looked?!

And that was our experience at Cloud 23! It was such a nice afternoon and we both had a great time just catching up and eating/drinking away. Ooh and taking pictures, too. So if you’re in Manchester and fancy a catch up with a friend, I’d definitely recommend coming but if it’s the view you’re after then you’re best off coming when the sun’s setting – or at least when the sun’s out!

Thanks for reading! Have you ever been to Cloud 23 before? If not, where’s the best place you’ve had afternoon tea?

Until next time,
