Spain's La Manga Club offers the chance to indulge in a great British custom with the launch of a 'Traditional Afternoon Tea' service. Guests can tuck into mouth-watering British delicacies every afternoon at the resort's Piano Bar. Finger sandwiches, sweet treats and scones with strawberry jam and cream are offered daily. A glass of cava is also included in the price of €12 per person while those with a love of cards can combine tea with a game of bridge in a private room nearby at La Manga Club's Amapola Restaurant.
The official overseas training base of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), the resort's facilities include three 18-hole golf courses, a 28-court tennis centre and 2,000sqm Wellness Centre, while La Manga Club is the home to Spain's only official Chelsea FC Foundation Soccer School.
