Afternoon tea is synonymous with sophistication and refinery so it comes as no surprise that some of London’s best afternoon tea destinations are found in Mayfair. Considered as one of the finest and most affluent areas of London, exclusive Mayfair has long played host to some of the best hotels, shops and restaurants in the capital.
Located between Oxford Street and Piccadilly, Mayfair is home to some of the wealthiest residents not just in London but in the whole world and is a mecca for the rich and famous. The wide open spaces of Hyde Park are found adjacent to the area whilst sights such as Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square are just a short walk away.
Afternoon Tea in Mayfair is quite an occasion and many of the finest teas in the capital are found within its perimeters. The Dorchester Hotel is one of London’s most luxurious establishments and plays host to a divine afternoon tea whilst Brown’s Hotel has been serving an exquisite afternoon tea for many years.
For a step away from the traditional, sample the amazing afternoon tea at Sketch Gallery, a stunningly unique and contemporary Michelin starred venue in Mayfair whilst the Chesterfield Hotel has created a magnificent afternoon tea inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory including fizzy lifting cheesecake and a golden Wonka bar.
Exclusive and dripping with money, Mayfair is a playground for those with bulging bank accounts, offering decadence and indulgence on every corner. It may not be everybody’s cup of tea (pardon the pun) but it is certainly one of the finest destinations in London for a first class afternoon tea.
