High Tea At The Maid's Head Norwich

Presidential high tea at The Maid's Head Hotel, Norwich

On a site dating back almost 1,000 years, the Maid's Head hotel has played host to Queen Elizabeth I, The Black Prince and Catherine of Aragon.

Lo-frills accommodation this is not.
I chose it as the venue for my Presidential high tea before our ICAEW East Anglia annual dinner for a number of reasons, least of which were the convenience and the fact that the owner is also a fellow Chartered Accountant.
The building has a real sense of history and character; it is full of great stories which David Chaplin told as we drank fizz from Tour de Belfort, made by his father-on-law and attacked the finger buffet of sandwiches and cakes before we moved on to the cathedral.


Norwich Cathedral, which overlooks the hotel, is an 800-year-old building with a behavioural, rather than commercial purpose, was the venue for my final address as President of Chartered Accountants East Anglia - details here.
