To inspire you to indulge in an afternoon of treats below are just a few of the amazing locations you can head off to!   

The Tea Room at Burnham Beeches

“Built in 1727, this elegant manor house is nestled within 10 acres of beautiful gardens in Buckinghamshire, providing guests with the utmost tranquility. Afternoon Tea is served in The Tea Room, where classic & contemporary design blend effortlessly with culinary excellence. Using the finest quality ingredients, Burnham Beeches Hotel handcrafts a mouth-watering selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones, beautifully presented on a three-tier plate.”

Afternoon Tea at The Beaumont Hotel

“The 5-star Beaumont Hotel occupies a fine Art Deco building on a quiet garden square, close to the boutiques, galleries and museums of Mayfair, St James’s and the West End.

Afternoon Tea is served in Gatsby’s Room, the beating heart of the hotel and a relaxing space in which to enjoy this wonderful ritual in the company of family and friends.

Tuck into a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, including devilled Cacklebean egg mayonnaise and shrimp cocktail, followed by a decadent array of scones and pastries. Highlights include a wild blueberry religieuse and a caramelised apple pie.

All of this is served alongside your choice of loose-leaf tea and, if you’re feeling extra fancy, a glass of English Sparkling Wine or a non-alcoholic JING Jasmine Pearls Sparkling Tea Cocktail. A vegan Afternoon Tea is also available, featuring an array of lovingly crafted plant-based delights, as is a special Afternoon Tea for children.”

The Chesterfield Hotel

“The Chesterfield Hotel has put a vegan spin on its nostalgic Mr Simms Sweetshop Afternoon Tea menu. Guests can tuck into a delicious array of lovingly crafted plant-based sweets and savouries.

Afternoon Tea is quite an event at The Chesterfield Mayfair – Commended at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2019. Recognised for their outstanding quality and consistently high standards of tea service, this elegant venue pays suitable respect to the great British ritual while offering some exciting variations on the original.

Afternoon Tea is served in either their Conservatory, which is flooded with natural daylight, set against the backdrop of the garden and fountain, or The Butler’s Restaurant which is warm and intimate and provides a quintessential British dining experience.”
