There is one thing that truly epitomises the British culture and that is afternoon tea in London. The picture of hot tea in a pot, finger sandwiches and exquisite cakes could not be enjoyed anywhere else. There are some amazing restaurants in London that offer not only the best for dinner but have created their only mouth-watering take on this symbol of British refinement and service.
The Ritz is famous for its tea and cake. It has become such an institution with visitors that there are five sitting available each day. As with all things wonderful this exclusive treat needs to be booked well in advance - in fact four weeks in advance. Guests can enjoy the stylish surroundings in Palm Court and enjoy piano or harp music as they sip and nibble. Another historic place for afternoon tea is The Savoy. Served within the elegant and remarkable Thames Foyer choose from a range of scones, finger sandwiches, French pastries and their own unique brand of cakes.
