So I've not uploaded in almost two weeks because I've been super busy! But today I can finally sit down and write a blog post for you all! YAAAAAY!
So just over a week ago it was my mums birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM) and a week ago today me, my mum, brother and Tom went to Cloud 23 in Manchester for afternoon tea to celebrate! So i thought I'd write a little about my experience and how it was! Once again I apologise for the photo quality, I had to take all my pictures on my phone as my SD card is still being temperamental. I should probably get some new ones... anyway enough about SD cards, more about Cloud 23.
For those of you who don't know, Cloud 23 is a bar/venue located on floor 23 (hence the name) of the Beetham tower in Manchester. Whilst they are a bar they also do afternoon tea, which is what we went for.
Cloud 23 is accessed through a private lift, which honestly I found extremely exciting haha. But as soon as you reach the top, the feature you instantly see is the panoramic views of the city through the floor to ceiling windows. The views are honestly breath taking and it was rather an incredible place to spend a monday afternoon!
As soon as we were entered the bar we were greeted by helpful and friendly staff. Although we were rather early they still seated us almost immediately. The decor in the whole bar was incredible and so luxurious, the tables were set beautifully and can I just add how comfortable the seats were! Oh my gosh, amazing. We ordered drinks as soon as we sat down, I ordered a milk hot chocolate to start which was amazing AND they actually had white hot chocolates which I tried later which was also delicious. We did have an issue with one drink as my mums cup of tea was cold, however all we had to do was ask and they instantly brought over a brand new, steaming hot cup. Which immediately solved the issue and they were extremely lovely about it.
Our afternoon tea was served not long after getting our drinks and honestly, it was amazing. I don't know how many times I've said amazing but thats the only way i can describe the whole thing haha.
My mum is a vegetarian along with having to eat gluten free and they suited all of her dietary needs brilliantly along with bringing both afternoon teas on separate trays. we were served a selection of sandwiches and desserts along with scones. Everything tasted incredible and looked stunning! Honestly if you get a chance to go and try the afternoon tea! DO IT!
In conclusion our visit to Cloud 23 was extremely enjoyable and super fun! It was a great way to celebrate my mums birthday and I will certainly be returning if possible!
Thanks for reading and see you soon,
P.S. My birthday haul which i promised will be coming soon, its just super long and taking a while to edit! I will link it here when it's done! But make sure you're following me on instagram and twitter to find out when I release it also!
