Claridges Hotel London Afternoon Tea Review

Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Claridges Hotel London Afternoon Tea Review…….

Claridge’s has been observing this delightful tradition of Afternoon Tea for 150 years.

For a century or more, their Executive Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones served warm, and sweet pastries.

The ingredients are painstakingly sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day.

The center piece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. I defy you to find a tea they do not have!

From the gorgeous cups and plates to the stunning room – it’s an event you will never forget…

Set in the splendour of Thierry Despont’s magnificent Foyer, inspired by the 1930s’ heyday of art deco, Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s is truly a magical experience.

The elegance and grandeur of Claridge’s takes you back to a much better time.

The service is divine, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is timeless and priceless.

It’s almost always fully booked so you’ll have to book well in advance.

Claridge’s is a 5* hotel offering the finest hospitality.

This is truly one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon. The table is yours so just sit back, relax and enjoy.

From the moment you arrive you are made to feel like a Queen or King.

Afternoon tea is the epitome of ‘Britain’ – it’s dignified, refined and respectful.

Your tea includes:

A selection of loose leaf teas and herbal infusions:

  • a choice of 24 teas from all over the world
  • a delicious array of finger sandwiches
  • freshly baked raisin and apple scones with Marco Polo jelly and Cornish Clotted cream
  • a selection of sweet pastries

Served on fine china in bold jade and white stripes, this utterly English meal is a mouth-watering experience.

There is a wide selection of teas from regional English to rare blends and herbal infusions.

There is a reason Claridge’s is commonly regarded as the best afternoon tea in the world – I’ve NEVER had better.

Discreet note – trainers and jeans are not welcome. Please make an effort, they’ve certainly made an effort for you! x
