Overview

Combine old-school English glamor with delicious cakes, sandwiches and tea on this must-do afternoon tea experience in London! Choose between one of two different types of afternoon tea one with Champagne or one with just tea both taking place at Londons 5-star Grosvenor House Hotel.

Know More about this tour

Afternoon tea in London is an institution, owing its origins to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford one of Queen Victorias ladies-in-waiting. As an elite member of Victorian society, she was accustomed to eating large breakfasts, small lunches and large dinners -- the latter served very late each night. To satisfy her afternoon hunger pangs, she summoned her servants to bring tea and cakes.

So delightful was the experience that it became a daily meal and the trend caught on all over London.
Still going strong today, afternoon teas are served all over the capital, with the most prestigious ones taking place in top hotels -- like the 5-star Grosvenor House Hotel where your afternoon tea experience takes place. Simply choose from one of the following options and relax in an atmosphere of genteel refinement:

Traditional Afternoon Tea:

Enjoy a traditional light afternoon tea, served in style in the Grosvenor Houses library. Taking place between 3pm and 6pm, the light feast includes a pot of classic English tea, traditional (crust-removed) sandwiches, pastries, and scones with clotted cream and fruit preserves.

Annas Champagne Afternoon Tea:

Sit down in Grosvenor Houses Park Room, which overlooks Hyde Park, and relax to elegant music from the resident pianist. Created as a testament to Duchess Annas legacy, this luxury afternoon tea comprises dainty finger sandwiches, buttermilk scones, cream puffs and pastries -- all served with your choice of fine English tea and a glass of all-important Champagne.

    Horrible. Awful memory.

    There's no public transportation in London on Christmas Day, so I walked miles from the hotel to get there, only to be turned away by the doorman.

    I finally begged my way in after pulling out the voucher.

    Tourists inside left spoons in their tea as they drank it!

    Everything I thought afternoon tea would be! I wish I could remember our servers name, but she was wonderful. She catered to me because I have limited hearing so she would lean over to me to make sure I heard what she was saying. Such a lovely young woman! Many of the fictional books I read as a younger woman always had Grosvenor House, Hyde Park, Covent Gardens and Bath in them so how delightful to get to visit these places I had read about. Treat yourself to afternoon tea in this lovely old hotel!

    We had stayed at the Grosvenor House before hand thought this would be a nice opportunity to visit it again. The service staff were excellent if a bit slow by American standards. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was ok, a little dry enough for two people.
    My only complaint was the chair I was in was very uncomfortable. Apparently the lady at a table next to mine thought so too, because she swapped with her husband.

    We stayed at the JW Grosvenor Hotel but booked with you. This was truly a wonderful experience. LOTS of food, no need for dinner as we planned it at 5pm. AWESOME!

    This was one of our highlights in London! Had a great table the sandwiches, pastries and tea were amazing. Before we left they even offered us a piece of cake to go. Service was also perfect.

  • 02-Nov-2017

    This was fantastic!! They offer a piece of cake to take home with you and kindly boxed up our leftovers. I'd love to do it again.
