I'm a huge fan of Afternoon Tea and living in England means I get to (over) indulge on a regular basis, so I thought I would showcase some of my favourite Afternoon Teas in London and also a few special ones abroad.
Afternoon Tea at Claridges
One of the biggest debates you get with Afternoon Tea in London is Claridges vs The Ritz - for me the winner is Claridges hands down. It also has the biggest waiting list ever so if you're heading to London make sure you book at least three months in advance to get a spot. The personal service, relaxed atmosphere and great food is what makes Claridges so special and if you're gluten free then this is the best Gluten Free Afternoon Tea you will find in London.
Afternoon Tea at The Goring
Want to rub shoulders with royalty then The Goring is for you - it was the Queen Mothers favourite place to dine and also where the gorgeous Kate Middleton spent her last night of freedom before becoming the Duchess of Cambridge. The afternoon tea is usually served with a little royal twist and during summer can be served on the terrace.
Afternoon Tea at The Royal Horseguards
Pretty pink china and delicious pastries makes this the perfect place to have a girly afternoon tea and the hotel is often used in period dramas and is just so charming.
Afternoon Tea at The Old Cataract Hotel Aswan, Egypt
When it comes to location then the Afternoon Tea at the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan is one that can't be beat - enjoying afternoon tea while the sun is setting overlooking the Nile is something that you will never forget.
Afternoon Tea at Hotel Grande Bretagne Athens, Greece
Afternoon Tea is served in the gorgeous Winter Garden and offers the best scones in the world (even better than Claridges) so when in Athens make sure you pop into this iconic luxury hotel that has been inviting intrepid travellers through it's revolving doors for over 100 years.
When visiting London make sure you add Afternoon Tea onto your bucket list and over indulge on sandwiches, warm scones and delicious pastries that are served up with champagne and copious amounts of tea.
