5 Best places to have afternoon tea in London
An afternoon tea (or High Tea as it’s known in all other parts of the world apart from the UK) is one of those must-do experiences when in London. Yes it’s in Pounds which will make it the most expensive afternoon tea you’re ever had, but trust us, it’s just one of those activities you have to do. Here’s Sure Tavel's pick of the top five places to have afternoon tea in the city…

Shangri-La Hotel, the Shard
From the 35th floor of the Shard, you’ll have the most magnificent birds-eye views of the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and other London icons all overlooking the Thames. There is the traditional English option but the Asian-inspired afternoon tea is recommended here.

How could you possibly not fall in love with the Royal Opera House? Before you've even laid eyes on the cute little sandwiches, the vast glass windows of the 19th-century conservatory will have you blown away.

Mad Hatter’s Tea at The Sanderson Hotel
If you're looking for something a bit different, head to The Sanderson Hotel for a Mad Hatter's afternoon tea. Expect colourful sandwiches, potions to sip, blueberry lollipops turning tongues from hot to cold and hazulnut ice-cream pops. The menu changes seasonally to keep diving down the rabbit hole interesting.

London Bus Afternoon Tea
Not the place you'd normally associate with scones and dainty nibbles... a shiny 1960s Routemaster bus has been lovingly  restored and turned into a touring tea bus that completes a 90-minute tour of the city while you sit back and sip your Earl Grey. A one-of-a-kind experience!
