London Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor House

    What to Expect
    Select your desired afternoon tea option when you book. Then, on the day, make your own way to London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, one of the city’s most distinguished addresses, with a history that stretches back to 1929. 

    On arrival, linger over one of England’s greatest institutions—afternoon tea. This much-loved ritual owes its existence to the 18th-century Anna Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, and great friend of Queen Victoria. Finding that the era’s fashion for ever-later dinners left her feeling peckish during the afternoon, Anna began partaking of tea and cakes to fill the gap. The custom quickly caught on and soon established itself as a convivial ritual of fashionable London society.

    Today, the most prestigious afternoon teas are served at London’s top hotels, such as the 5-star Grosvenor House, where your experience takes place in an atmosphere of calm elegance at your desired time between 2pm and 6pm on your chosen day.

    Traditional Afternoon Tea: With this option, sit down to a traditional light tea served in the Grosvenor House library. Soak up the polished yet homely surroundings of this elegant room, and enjoy a delicious menu of freshly cut sandwiches with their crusts removed; fluffy scones with clotted cream and fruit jams; and exquisite pastries, all teamed with a pot of classic English tea.

    Anna’s Champagne Afternoon Tea: Upgrade for the ultimate afternoon tea experience in the sumptuous comfort of the Grosvenor House Park Room. Absorb the views of Hyde Park and be serenaded by light music from the house pianist as you’re served a luxurious tea inspired by the legacy of Duchess Anna. Savor dainty finger sandwiches, melt-in-the-mouth buttermilk scones, delicate cream puffs, and dinky pastries, and sip on your selection from a choice of fine English teas. A glass of chilled Champagne provides an enchanting finishing touch.

    Your traditional or Champagne afternoon tea experience ends when you finish your tea.

    What could be more British than afternoon tea. Grosvenor House did a magnificent job. We were treated royally and served delicious food. Saiful was our waiter and he made us feel very special. Best of all everyone got a "doggy bag" of wonderful pastries on our way out.

    Can’t fault our afternoon tea experience, staff went above and beyond for us. We were offered the bottomless champagne offer which we originally wanted but told we could because the offer had ended! Lovely surroundings and very enjoyable.

    Had a wonderful afternoon tea in the Park Room. The setting itself is wonderful and luxurious. The afternoon tea had much to live up to and it did not disappoint. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were all a delight. More is available and offered but we found there was enough
