Where to Have Afternoon Tea in London

afternoon tea londonAfternoon tea in London is something that can’t be missed if you’re across the pond. There’s something so very old world chic about lingering over a cup of tea and working your way from delicious sandwiches to the most amazing desserts. We had reservations at 4pm for afternoon tea at the beautiful Corinthia Hotel and it was such a fun way to round out the trip. high tea londonWe made the mistake of eating lunch after our War Rooms tour, so I recommend not eating much before heading to tea. The food is all so good you won’t want to pass anything up. We opted for the champagne afternoon tea and started with a glass of bubbly. They then presented us with the most extensive herbal tea menu to choose from. Brian, like most guys’ there, had the ‘Winston Churchill Blend’ , while I went with the ‘wedding tea’. Highly recommend both!high tea corinthia hotel londonThe desserts (or, fancies) oh the desserts. We tried our best to at least try every one, but we hit a wall and didn’t even make it through. Pretty sure I could eat those scones every day and never get tired of them. high tea dessert tray londonHave any of y’all had a fun afternoon tea experience?

    What a fun experience! We did an afternoon tea in London with Gary’s friends and while it wasn’t nearly as fabulous as yours the food was still amazing! I love that you guys chose the bubble option! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I’ve had afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. It was fabulous and hope to do it again one day!

    What a fun experience and everything looks delicious. Another reason to visit London too!! My favorite afternoon tea experience was in Singapore. 🙂

    As many times as I have been to London I have never done high tea. I’m so ashamed to admit that! I am definitely going back soon and doing it and of course champagne high tea! 🙂 <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    I did afternoon tea at the Orangery in London. It was absolutely lovely, but it also earned bonus points because as we were waiting outside in the garden for our reservation, Kate, Charlotte, George, and their dog casually strolled by on an afternoon walk. My friend and I could not have had a more British tea experience!

    Such a fun experience! My friend was recently in London and did the afternoon tea at the Corinthia Hotel as well. She said it was amazing!
