My sister decided to treat me for my Birthday for Afternoon Tea at the Ritz. We dressed to the hilt and took the tube (ha ha ). It was a treat beyond all expectations. The charm of this beautiful hotel with a three piece band playing in the background. The service was excellent and we got to choose our own brand of tea. The sandwiches were yummy, the scones perfect (brought out warm) and the cakes. You could eat and they would ask if you would like a refill.
The highlight was when they brought out all our individual birthday cakes (small of course) with our names on it and a lighted candle. They were a few of us celebrating our birthdays. The band came up and played Happy Birthday.
I would do this again in a hurry, life is short, soil yourself. Although visiting London again in September (this time with husband) I do think it is his cup of tea - he prefers sitting and chatting with friends and I love history and having a blast.

Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites.
