England, London Guide (B): High Tea in London: 5 Chic Venues for All Occasions

High Tea in London: 5 Chic Venues for All Occasions
No visit to London without High Tea! The concept, which supposedly takes its roots in the early 19th century, is more popular than ever, and it’s synonymous with British etiquette. Most larger hotels offer High Tea these days, but these five elegant venues never go out of style. There’s one for every occasion. 

The traditional: Brown’s Hotel

There are LOADS of traditional High Tea venues in London, so it’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite. Still, there’s something about Brown’s version that makes me come back again and again. Maybe it’s the famous English Tea Room adorned with mahogany details and a cosy fireplace, or maybe it’s just the slice of traditional London life you’ll get when unwinding in the plush furniture. Whichever, Brown’s Hotel wasn’t the favorite tea venue of Queen Victoria for no reason.
Guests can choose between different High Tea menus – go for the traditional serving if you’re a newbie in the world of Afternoon Tea, but go the extra mile and opt for a ‘tea-tox’ if you’d like to try something different (and a bit healthier). Brown’s cater to everyone’s needs – especially those with a preference for quality tea! If that’s you, go for the seasonal tea library, which is a collection of the world’s most exquisite teas.
Monday-Sunday 12AM-6PM. Prices from: €60. More info.
