Quintessentially British, afternoon tea is not only one of London's most famous pastimes, but also offers a welcome break during a long day shopping or London sightseeing. Relax and refresh yourself with tea, coffee, sandwiches, pastries, cakes and perhaps even a glass of chilled Champagne, in elegant and cosy surroundings. Afternoon tea at one of London's top hotels is certainly a luxurious and extravagant affair. It is not just tea and cake, but a lavish setting with exquisite service and the finest china, often accompanied by live music. Traditional afternoon tea in a swanky London hotel is a real delight, and perfect for any special occassion, but booking is essential and smart dress codes apply.
