Afternoon Tea

Savour tasty cakes, scones, and dainty sandwiches, and a selection of teas with a delightfully British afternoon tea. It’s a great way to celebrate a birthday, catch-up with friends, or take a welcome break from shopping. Discover lots of delicious options for afternoon tea in London and across the UK, below. Choose your experience or customise your options (e.g. by price or location) using the search filters on the left-hand side.

What’s on the menu?

A traditional afternoon tea includes a classic selection of sandwiches (think cooling cucumber or salmon and cream cheese), scones with clotted cream and jam; and a sweet selection of cakes and pastries. This is all washed down with your chosen pot of tea (some offer coffee). Remember to mention any special dietary needs, such as gluten free, as these are often catered for.

What is cream tea? A sort of ‘mini’ afternoon tea which includes a pot of tea with scones, clotted cream, and jam.

Looking for afternoon tea in London?

You’re spoilt for choice in London with options including traditional and champagne afternoon teas, as well as tea and tours, and if you’re looking for something a little bit different, themed afternoon teas.

Our top picks include the Harrods afternoon tea (which regularly features on ‘best afternoon tea in London’ lists) or the world-famous tea in the glamorous surroundings of The Ritz.

The Champagne Afternoon Tea

All the sweet treats of the traditional afternoon tea, but this time, you’ll be sipping a glass of bubbly alongside your cuppa - great, if you want to make someone feel really special. 

You could be enjoying this decadent treat in a 19th century Magistrates Court or at historic hotels throughout the UK. Alternatively, listen to the soothing sounds of harp music while you nibble cakes and sip Champagne in the elegant Art Deco lounge of Palm Court - this truly is one of the best afternoon teas in London and has the awards to prove it!

A Great British Tradition

In the 1840s, Britons relied on two meals a day; breakfast and a late dinner. Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford began enjoying a daily pot of tea and light snack in the afternoon, to stave off hunger pangs before her evening meal. After inviting her friends to join her, the ritual caught on amongst fashionable hostesses and the British tradition of afternoon tea was born. Today, afternoon tea is enjoyed as a meal, a treat, or to celebrate an occasion.
