If you’re heading to Liverpool and you’re looking for something to tickle your taste buds, then pick up your Easirent hire car from our Bootle city branch and take the short drive to one of our favourite places for a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea.
1. East Avenue Bakehouse
Pick up your Easirent hire car from our Bootle city branch and head to the East Avenue Bakehouse, which is located on Bold Street in the heart of Liverpool City Centre.

Coming in a choice of two type of afternoon tea, the Liverpool Lady or the Mersey Man, diners can expect home made cakes, macaroons, smoked salmon blinis and handcrafted scotch eggs.
2. Baltic Social
If you’re looking for a slightly edgier afternoon tea experience, then head to the Baltic Social for their infamous ‘Punk Afternoon Tea’. Based in the Baltic Triangle, the up and coming cultural hub of the city, it’s definitely worth a visit if just to wander around the streets and take in the bohemian vibe. It is free to park your Easirent hire car after 6pm on the streets surrounding the Baltic Social, and there are plenty of cheap car parks nearby for visitors wanting to visit a little earlier in the day. Be prepared to be wowed by the selection available with Punk Afternoon Tea – think along the lines of mini hotdogs, mini burgers, fluorescent cakes and of course jelly sweets.
