Home to one of the most famous afternoon tea destinations in the world – The Ritz – as well as the legendary Fortnum & Mason afternoon tea, Piccadilly is a veritable afternoon tea heaven. One of London’s busiest locations, Piccadilly is found within the very heart of the West End and boasts Regents Street, Oxford Street and Mayfair as its neighbours. The Royal Academy of Arts is found along Piccadilly, home to some of the world’s finest works of art as well as a pretty wonderful afternoon tea whilst upmarket hotels like Le Meridien Piccadilly also serve a superb afternoon tea.
St James's is part of London's iconic West End and is a central district in the City of Westminster. St James is highly exclusive and is the most expensive place in the world to rent, with office space costing five times that of New York and Paris. Unsurprisingly some of the afternoon tea prices are a little higher too! That said, St James is home to some of the most exclusive afternoon tea venues in the world, including the most famous of all, The Ritz Hotel.
