After lockdown lifts, it will be exciting and fun to enjoy afternoon tea out and not delivered to your home. Relax and enjoy the many wonderful treats and perhaps have a glass of Prosecco or two. There are so many fantastic places to enjoy afternoon tea in London and we selected our favourite venues all of which were unaware they were being rated to be included in our blog.

The Washington Hotel, Mayfair, is an excellent location and the champagne afternoon tea was first class too. The service was outstanding nothing was too much trouble and all dietary requirements are catered for. They swapped one of the fillings, in our finger sandwiches and the delicate desserts and of course scones were all fresh and a extremely tasty!. Included was a glass of champagne and extensive selection of teas and coffee.
The Montague on the Gardens, London
The Montague on The Gardens is near the British Museum, the traditional feel couples together with the afternoon tea, served overlooking the peaceful gardens in the heart of London. There are many places to enjoy and from spring time onwards, opt to have afternoon tea on the terrace. The savouries are a twist on the normal finger sandwiches, as there is a selection of flavoured breads, all dietary requirements are catered for. The sweets were a selection of petit enchantment, whilst small and delicate were very filling! We enjoy a cocktail or two. There was a varied choice of teas and coffees, with refills on request.
The Delaunay is a gem in Covent Garden, a traditional afternoon tea with a viennese twist. Whilst in London, escape to a place in Vienna for the afternoon, then The Delaunay is the place to go. The afternoon tea is exceptional value for your money. A three tier selection of savouries and sweet, the favourite being apricot guglehopf! The scones were warm and fresh. Tea and coffee was unlimited and the service was great too. A very enjoyable afternoon tea in Covent Garden. [su_divider]
