It’s Afternoon Tea Week! This week London is celebrating all things afternoon tea, and in honor of the occasion I bring you my list of the best afternoon teas in London.
Afternoon Tea at The Goring
The Goring has always been one of my favorite places for afternoon tea. The sunny yellow tearoom is bright and cheerful no matter the weather, and the sandwiches, scones, and pastries are always delicious (as is the champagne!).
Afternoon Tea at The Corinthia
The Corinthia has the prettiest afternoon tea in London. The light, airy ambiance beneath the stunning lobby dome and famous chandelier makes it a great place for a summer afternoon tea. On top of that, every pastry is a delicate work of art.
Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley
When it comes to themed teas, Pret-a-Portea at The Berkeley is the best afternoon tea in London. Its fashionista angle means that every cake and cookie is designed after the current season’s runway shows, and it’s a great excuse for girly indulgence.
Afternoon Tea at Teanamu
Tucked away in an unassuming house in Notting Hill, Teanamu is a haven of tranquility and the perfect place to escape the crowds on Portobello Road. The emphasis here is on the tea itself, which is a nice contrast to many afternoon teas, where the namesake takes a backseat to the food. Teanamu also offers one of the best value afternoon teas in the city.
Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester
The Dorchester has the best traditional afternoon tea in London. The Promenade offers the perfect classic ambiance, and the food and service are everything they should be at one of London’s most famous luxury hotels.
How about you? What is your favorite afternoon tea in London?
