Since it is National Afternoon Tea Week this week, we have decided to tell you which are our favourite afternoon tea venues in London. Here are the team’s favourites…
Harry – Claridges
A very classic, traditional afternoon tea. If you want somewhere very English, this is the place to go. The Foyer has a very art deco 1930s feel to it to go with the truly magical afternoon tea experience.
Elia – The Berkeley
This is afternoon tea with a creative twist to the classic afternoon tea elements. It is inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world and changes every six months to follow the changing seasons in fashion. Their cakes and fancies are inspired by designers such as Christian Louboutin, Miu Miu, Oscar De La Renta and many more. A really cool, quirky way to have afternoon tea!
Nicola – Marriott Grosvenor House
I have been to quite a few venues in London for afternoon tea as it’s an activity I often enjoy with my friends. Marriott Grosvenor House’s afternoon tea has definitely been the best up to now. Their sandwiches are exquisite, their teas are very unique, the scones are heavenly and the desserts were delicious too. Their service is also fantastic – highly recommended!
Donnie – The Lanesborough
Even though the Lanesborough is currently closed for renovations, their afternoon is tea is absolutely amazing. They have a great selection of teas and sandwiches and the hotel is lovely. Great place in London for afternoon tea.
Andrea – The Dorchester
The venue is beautiful, the food is fresh and the scones were fantastic! It is the best afternoon tea I have ever been too and I recommend it to others.
Vanessa – The Landmark
The Winter Garden is the perfect setting for afternoon tea and is situated at the heart of the soaring eight story glass roof atrium. Not only do The Landmark offer scrumptious sandwiches, French pastries and scones, but they also have mouth-watering chocolate delights available as well as a vast array of teas.
Niklaus – Sanderson London
In my opinion, the best afternoon tea in London! Afternoon tea at the Sanderson London is like no other – it has a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party theme. Something completely different and so fun. Vintage books as menus, napkins wrapped in riddles, queen tea pots, marshmallow mushrooms and many more exciting little treats.
Lorna – The Grove
The sweet finger sandwiches, scones and chocolaty desserts are well presented upon a traditional English stand. Which definitely matches the historic surroundings making you dream of being among the rich for every afternoon. Such a lovely gift for mothers and aunts or even for that special someone.
Hamboula – Hilton Park Lane
If you love chocolate, Hilton Park Lane’s afternoon tea is the one for you! With a mix of Pop art and chocolate, everything looks amazing as well as tastes amazing. They have delicious sandwiches but even their scones have chocolate in! Every chocolate lovers dream!
