Afternoon tea. Yes, it's twee. But there is something quite fun about working your way through what's essentially dessert tapas. Especially when it's one by one of London’s hotels, restaurants and cafés. Our city's renowned for putting on some of the world’s best spreads – even better than your mum's Boxing Day buffet – so we’ve done the decent thing and eaten our way through the crème de la crème.
We’ve checked out exactly which afternoon teas are being served again in London and we’ll keep you updated as even more places share info on welcoming back customers. It’s going to be a little bit different: many hotels and restaurants have reduced opening hours and limited places due to social distancing. For any other safety details, check with venues in advance of your visit. But otherwise, go and devour all those miniature treats!
