Celebrate a quintessentially British past-time with a modern twist and indulge in a spot of Afternoon Tea with Bubbly for Two.
Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell - the seventh Duchess of Bedford - asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea with light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining. These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, without losing a crumb of its wonderful charm.
This experience offers you and a guest the opportunity to indulge in a sumptuous selection of sweet and savoury treats with tea and bubbly in some of the most lavish hotels and tea rooms in the country. With a wide selection of carefully hand-picked afternoon tea locations to choose from, there’s a venue to please all for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for an elegant country manor house or a trendy boutique city hotel to enjoy a stylish and sophisticated dining experience, or for a more relaxed and contemporary affair, maybe a homely independent tearoom is more your thing. Wherever you choose, you are spoilt for afternoon tea locations to pick from.
Your afternoon tea may vary slightly depending on which location you have chosen. You could be treated to a pleasing array of freshly made finger sandwiches, yummy scones served with cream and jam, or even something quite unique like a trio of burgers. At most locations, you will also enjoy a choice of mouth-watering cakes or pastries and most importantly, accompanied with an elegant glass of either fizz or sparkling wine.
Whether you are celebrating or simply relaxing, this is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

DoubleTree by Hilton (London West End), Bloomsbury, London

What did you get up to?
Upon arrival at the DoubleTree by Hilton in London West End my friend and I were immediately in awe of the venue and décor. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and very welcoming. We were seated by staff straight away and asked what type of tea we would like. We were asked whether we would like our champagne served before or after we had eaten – I think it was great that you’re given a choice so your champagne remains chilled for when you're ready to enjoy it. After a short wait our afternoon tea was served! We enjoyed a large plate of sandwiches with different fillings such as cucumber & soft cheese or honey glazed gammon & grain mustard, they were all delicious! The homemade sultana scones were served slightly warm with clotted cream and strawberry jam. We then enjoyed various delicious cakes such as mini Victoria sponges, raspberry mousse, chocolate mousse and pecan sponge cake. We had the most amazing day in a lovely venue and I would certainly recommend the afternoon tea to anyone!
What did you enjoy the most?
The venue and décor was stunning and we loved relaxing in this type of atmosphere.
1. Don’t eat before you go.
2. I recommend upgrading to champagne, it’s delicious and so refreshing!
