Afternoon Tea Guide

Hi everyone!

My mum and myself are looking to take my Nana to London for the day on the 20th November for her 65th birthday and as we are only going for the day, we thought it would be nice to have afternoon tea somewhere special.

I have trawled through websites and there are masses of choice and I don't know where to start. We are looking for somewhere traditional and if possible with a little luxury but mid range in price if possible. Any suggestions? I have looked at The Langham and The Ritz but they are a little pricey. Somewhere in the £20-£30 region would be more like it (or cheaper if it is good!)

I will be really grateful of any suggestions or recommendations!

I second the Capital Hotel - their tea is very good, and the room is lovely. It's £20.50 per person or £31.00 per person with a glass of Champagne. Once in a while they'll have a special offer (the tea with Champagne will be discounted, for example), so do ask if there are special offers when you book. And be sure to tell them it's for a special birthday!

A third vote for the Capital Hotel.

As much as I love Claridges and am desperate to try the newly re-opened Savoy, the Capital Hotel is where I go for a pretty, comfortable setting with good service and good food.

But don't forget to book. Those of us who love it have spoken of it too much on Trip Advisor and now it is sometimes full!

Grosvenor House according to my uncle do a lovely afternoon tea. Tea at the Ritz was lovely though.
