London’s Best Afternoon Teas

If you are looking for a quintessentially British experience on your visit to London, afternoon tea at one of the most decadent hotels should be top of your itinerary.

There are more high-end eateries serving afternoon tea than there are London buses, so we’ve narrowed down the search for you to give you our top-rated places for afternoon tea.

Our top recommendations for the best afternoon teas in London are:

The Ritz

 Afternoon tea at The Ritz is as luxurious an experience as you will find.

It is the only hotel in the UK to have a certified Tea Master and your afternoon tea is served to the sound of a harpist and pianist playing. The Ritz has been serving Afternoon tea for over 100 years and if you are looking for a classic afternoon tea experience, The Ritz is the place to be.

The Savoy

Another traditional choice for afternoon tea, The Savoy is very popular with diners who enjoy a luxury service. Afternoon tea is served in the world-famous glass-domed Thames Foyer.

You can expect classic sandwiches with delicious scones and the French patisseries are raved about.

The Beaumont

 With The Beaumont, you can enjoy a traditional ambience of English afternoon tea, with a contemporary American influence.

There is a trans-Atlantic menu offering more distinctive afternoon tea food options such as oak-smoked Lox and a ‘Snickers’ Macaroon. The champagne cocktails are also definitely worth a try if you want to have an alcoholic drink along with your food.

Ting at Shangri-La Hotel

If a stunning view of London will make your afternoon tea complete, then Ting is an excellent choice.

The Asian-inspired restaurant is located on Level 35 of The Shard, providing some of the best views over the London skyline. You will be served afternoon tea with a very Asian twist, with snacks such as hoisin duck pancake.

To finish, you will be presented with what they describe as ‘A Piece of Architecture’ in the form of the impressive Chocolate and Raspberry Shard dessert.

Fortnum and Mason

 For an afternoon tea fit for royalty, Fortnum and Mason is as close to a Buckingham Palace visit as you can get. The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon was formally opened in 2012 by Her Majesty, who was accompanied by their Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge.

Suffice to say, the afternoon tea is as delicious as you would imagine, with choices between Classic and Savoury afternoon tea menus, as well as a High Tea menu.


Whether you want to enjoy the most stunning views in London for afternoon tea, have a more traditional experience or a contemporary menu, London is the best place in the world for afternoon tea.

All of these amazing venues are within easy access of 37GS Residences and we can also arrange a luxury chauffeur service to make your afternoon tea outing even more memorable
