Scones and tombstones: a slice of home-made jam sponge with a pot of Earl Grey in a graveyard may not be everyone's cuppa. Yet Sunday afternoon tea outside St Anne's Church, from 3-5pm during the summer, has much to offer. Earn yourself a treat after strolling in nearby Kew Gardens or listening to a free music recital inside the church. Soak up the genteel Women's Institute atmosphere, with cakes baked and served by ladies of the parish. Make a discovery or two - you could be perched on Gainsborough or Zoffany. The summer silence is punctuated by the occasional 'Howzat' of the local cricket team playing alongside on Kew Green.
