I'm planning on taking my mum for afternoon tea for her birthday. Was thinking of going to the Ritz but there's not a great deal of availability for the dates I want. Any suggestions? Around the £50 - £60 mark per person. Thanks.
Thr Wellesley is a beautiful Art Deco 5* hotel in Hyde Park Corner, but because it’s next to thr Lanesborough their afternoon tea only costs around £35. Quality is lovely and they’ll bring you more of anything you want.
For my mum I'd go to fortnum and mason. Availability is easier than the Ritz and the tea salon upstairs with the piano is gorgeous. It's very touristy but is old fashioned luxury and you can have a wander around the shop after
I have been to lots and always go back to Fortnum. Perhaps not the nicest room but they have a choice of afternoon teas and as someone who is not a cake lover The Gentleman's (ok it is sexist) Afternoon Tea is perfect for me.
Not been myself, but my aunt loves a posh afternoon tea. She recently recommended to me the Houseguards hotel, but to go in the summer as you can request a balcony terrace table that overlooks the houseguards parade/Whitehall.
I can't decide! They all look good. Which would you say has the most grand setting. I have been to the Ritz before but it was a long time ago. I wanted somewhere with that kind of feel about it - somewhere special as it's a special birthday.
