Where to enjoy afternoon tea in London

Like a bit of tea in the afternoon? Well, you're in luck.

Ah, London: the city of Shakespeare, Big Ben and the humble meat pie.

But heading to the capital for the day isn’t the same without an afternoon tea.

Delicious nibbles, exquisite cakes, a glass of champers and fancy hotels… what more could you want?

Harrods, Mayfair and the Bloomsbury Hotel – there are all sorts of places serving these delightful teas.

So if you’ve got a venue in mind, we’ve probably got a tea for that!

You can even make a day of it with wholesome experiences like a tour of St Paul’s Cathedral or sightseeing on the Thames as part of the package.

Don’t forget to check out our deals and discounts below to make your money go further!
