Location: Claridge’s, Brook Street, Mayfair, London
In much the same way that brunch is the perfect opportunity to stave off morning hunger, afternoon tea is its p.m. counterpart. This tradition dating back over 150 years is accredited to a close friend of Queen Victoria who was looking for the perfect snack to fill the afternoon hunger gap. It has become one of Britain’s finest traditions with fans of good food and a little ceremony coming from all over the world to experience its splendour.
If there is one place that stands out head and shoulders above the rest as we search for the perfect afternoon tea as a Solo traveller in London, then that is Claridge’s. They offer a traditional menu of finger sandwiches, scones, pastries and a fantastic selection of tea lovingly prepared by the devoted staff each and every day. Naturally, our afternoon tea is served in the very finest bone china and using exquisite silverware made to the unique Claridges design. Everything follows the art deco theme that flows throughout this iconic location.
