A cup of tea is an excuse to share great thoughts with great minds!
Whether it’s for a special celebration, or just a treat after all your shopping, or you just simply want to indulge in the English ritual, an afternoon tea is an activity not to be missed in London.
During my winter trip to London last year, our company offered us a lovely afternoon treat at the famous Ritz Hotel. This year, to bring in the festiveness, they have organized a special Festive Afternoon Tea session at The Lanesborough London! Not only do you get the traditional tea and scones, you also get to enjoy the super delicious sweets and pastries that looks like art pieces! Let’s not forget to mention, The Landsborough London’s afternoon tea has won multiple awards from UK Tea Council’s Award of Excellence.
As our booking were a group booking, instead of dinning in the majestic, naturally-lit surroundings of Céleste or the elegantly refined Withdrawing Room, we had our own function room, which is still very nicely decorated.
There are 3 types of Afternoon Tea Sets offered here, the Traditional Afternoon Tea, the Prestige Afternoon Tea, and The Festive Afternoon Tea which runs from the 25th November till the 1st January. During the months of November and December, the hotel is decorated with lovely Christmas decorations, which blends in very well with the design of the hotel. What’s better than festive food paired with festive vibes right?
Here are some of the photos of how the interior of the hotel looks like.

As there are limited seating available daily for the afternoon tea, I would highly recommend you to book in advance.
