We were recently fortunate enough to enjoy the fabulous new afternoon tea at the County Hall Hotel, a superb offering comprising of a traditional afternoon tea and unlimited bubbly for just £39 per person.
The County Hall Hotel boasts an unrivalled location next to the London Eye and overlooks iconic London landmarks like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Held in the luxurious Library Lounge with its wood panelled walls and rich drapery, afternoon tea at the County Hall is the quintessential British occasion.
Amazing views of iconic London landmarks
Our table offered stunning views over the Thames and Big Ben and the setting was perfect for an afternoon of wonderful treats. The resident pianist played the most soothing background music and the ambience was quietly chatty. We were presented with a chest of various tea samples and we encouraged to smell each one to help us decide upon a choice of tea. This was so much more fun than simply choosing from the menu and for those who are not well acquainted with the more unusual teas it was also most helpful.
The champagne arrived almost immediately and we were topped up continuously throughout the afternoon without once having to ask. As for the food, perfect finger sandwiches, deliciously crumbly sweet and savoury scones and the most delectable little sweet treats were all delightful.
It’s hard to believe that this wonderful afternoon tea is just £39 per person considering the fact that the bubbly is unlimited, the venue is five star and the views over London simply breathtaking.
