To get an authentic taste of London, finding the right place for Afternoon Tea is an absolute necessity.
A tradition made popular by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Belford, indulging in a peaceful moment of tea and treats is an invigorating experience for locals and travellers alike.
If you’re visiting London and would like to know where you should stop in for a spot of gorgeously luxurious afternoon tea, here’s a guide on the best places to visit.
Nestled in Belgravia, The Goring is one of the primary spots to visit in the UK for afternoon tea and snacks. Opened in 1910, this hotel has a rich history of providing unmatched service and an afternoon of tea that stands the test of time.
Opened in 1906, the Ritz is an iconic location whose reputation has been extensively earned by creating a luxury space for relaxation and an extravagant atmosphere that cannot be replicated. Served in the Palm Court, the finest blended teas are accompanied by a selection of sandwiches, scones and a range of delectable pastries.
The Claridge’s Hotel has attracted attention from some of London’s most notable socialites since its opening. The Afternoon Tea is served in the gorgeous Foyer, which is straight ahead of you as you enter the main lobby of the hotel. The ingredients include British specialities such as poached Scottish salmon and their pastries change to reflect the fruits of the season. The menu itself isn’t as extensive as most would expect, but the tradeoff is that each treat present is carefully attended to.
On the 32nd floor, The Paramount treats afternoon tea enthusiasts with a breathtaking view that towers over central London. The restaurant is lined with glass windows, ensuring that guest won’t miss a single detail of the spectacular sights as they indulge in miniature ice cream cones, sorbet, or frozen cocktails.
If innovation has a flavour, it likely tastes like Farmacy’s fresh take on afternoon tea. Farmacy’s promotion of “plant-based, chemical free, and organic eating” is a new spin on an old classic that successfully brews a blend of refreshing, healthy, and environmentally-conscious menu items.
