whatever you do, avoid getting the cliche afternoon tea at harrods, its complete waste of money!

I would say the winter garden at the Landmark Hotel. Look it up looks amazing. You can often get a discount on afternoon tea etc on sites like bookatable. There's also Sketch which is famous for its interiors and quirky toilets

Sorry I am so late replying I only just saw this message, for a more traditional afternoon tea experience 'The Ritz' would be a good bet but for more of a modern option 'Sketch' is really nice.

I I have afternoon teas quite often and have been to several top locations and mid range locations, but I have to say that for me the best (for foods, ambience, waiters, and value for money) is the one in the Oscar Wilde roof at hotel cafe royal. Beautiful room, live music and unlimited food and tea. It's just the best!

Hi. Depends how much money youbwish to spend.
All main hotels 5* do them. The Landmark, the Ritz, the Savoy.
You can also look on Virgin Experiences and get some good deals. Go to their website.
(Note when you book up a table to use voucher quote the voucher to them though. Just a warning).
Thanks

It depends on how much you want to spend and what type of atmosphere you are looking for. Here are a few suggestions: Sanderson Hotel - it's a mad hatter's theme tea and the venue is really unique, boutique hotel; Brown's Brasserie - more casual, less expensive and there are a few different locations; B-Bakery - have a restaurant and also do an afternoon tea on the double decker sightseeing bus (not good if you get motion sickness!); Orangery Kensington Palace and Goring Hotel. You can search these and other afternoon tea venues here: https://afternoonteaonline.co.uk/london/

Afternoon tea in London, how quintessentially British and, very often, how very expensive. If you can live with the prices Brown's Hotel, Claridges and THe Ritx hotels all offer wonderful afternoon tea's as does Aqua at the Shard (which complements the meal with stunning views). Expect to pay well in excess of £40.00 per head - more if you choose to wash your food down with a glass of bubbly - it's an enjoyable experience but questionable value for money. You can go out to dinner for the same money in some really good restaurants.
