Five Favourite Afternoon Tea’s in London

Well here we are, it’s Friday of Afternoon Tea Week and I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts this week. I’ve eaten a heck of a lot of afternoon teas since moving to London (and of course have more planned, I’m particularly excited about my upcoming Summer in the City tea at the Conrad St James as well as the Alice’s Adventures Underground tea at Amba Hotel) and you can read my reviews of each of them here.

What I love most about afternoon tea is the decadence of it. Sandwiches, scones and cakes, all washed down with copious amounts of tea (and usually a cheeky glass of prosecco or champagne thrown in there too) it can be tricky not to overindulge and end up struck down by indigestion. Here are my top five afternoon tea experiences that I would be willing to take that risk for once again:

5. Dim Sum Afternoon Tea at Les Chinois

For something a bit different than your regular sandwiches, scones and cakes, the Dim Sum afternoon tea is a great option.

4. Royal Afternoon Tea at Kona

We really were treated like royalty at Kona with some of the best service I’ve had from an afternoon tea.


3. The Pick of the Parlour at The Parlour

If it’s a warm day you can’t go wrong with The Parlour at Fortnum and Mason who put an interesting spin on the traditional afternoon tea with a mini ice cream sundae.


2. Science Afternoon Tea at The Ampersand Hotel

Themed afternoon teas are brilliant fun and I don’t think anywhere does them as well as The Ampersand Hotel with the dry ice adding to our gleeful atmosphere.


1. Unlimited Prosecco Afternoon Tea at the Tower Hotel

Not only number one because this is where I spent my birthday but because for the money it is hands down the best afternoon tea experience I have had in the capital. Wonderful service, unlimited prosecco and a beautiful setting – perfect.


So those are my top five – what are yours?  Anywhere I desperately need to add to my list? There’s still two days left of afternoon tea week to go – are you treating yourself to one this weekend?

  1. They all look so scrummy.:) I don’t live near London but i’ve had the Mad Hatters tea at the Sanderson ( so quirky, great desserts) and the Berkley’s Pret et Portea which was fun and divine. I’d also love to try the BB bakery Afternoon Tea Bus Tour.:)
