London and afternoon tea go together like Paddington bear and marmalade sandwiches. Whether London is your home, or you're just visiting. You have to enjoy a proper British  afternoon tea at least once. Below are my personal choices for the best afternoon tea London has to offer.

This list has been personally comprised by yours truly. Taking into account the best afternoon tea London google maps ratings. Also the best London afternoon tea Instagram trends.

When I first started to enjoy some of the best afternoon tea in London I was a meat eater. However, I'm now vegetarian and thankfully many establishments cater to both vegans and vegetarians. As well as gluten free diners.

Afternoon Tea at the Savoy

Speaking from experience. The service.  Ambience and aesthetic appeal at the Savoy is very impressive. The Savoy is the only five star hotel on the river Thames. Also one of London's oldest and best luxury hotels. With a long list of teas to choose from. The Savoy even has its very own tea shop. Click here to read my review of afternoon tea at the Savoy.


Sketch is notorious for being home to London's most famous and one of the worlds most unique public bathrooms. Sketch houses two equally impressive afternoon tea rooms. One of which is the pretty in pink gallery room that you've probably seen circulating on Instagram. Read my review of afternoon tea at Sketch here.


Afternoon tea in London's tallest building had to be on the list of best afternoon tea. With impressive views across London. Enjoy luxury afternoon tea at Ting.
Dalloway Terrace

Alfresco afternoon tea on this pretty roof terrace is quite an experience during any season. As one of London's newer afternoon tea locations. The Dalloway terrace has been popular. You can still enjoy afternoon tea, snuggling up beneath soft blankets in colder months.

Charlie and the chocolate factory - aldwych

Enjoy a luxury afternoon tea with a quirky twist at One Aldwych. It takes place in a five star hotel, so you can rest assured that this afternoon tea will be tasteful not tacky.

The Ritz

One of London's longest standing and fanciest hotels. The Ritz have been serving one of the best afternoon teas for over 100 years and is still going strong!

The Lanesborough

The Lanesborough has been rated one of the best 5 star hotels serving afternoon tea according to google maps reviews.


Claridge's afternoon tea is one of the highest rated London afternoon tea's online, and it doesn't look like Claridge's will be leaving the list of best afternoon tea experiences any time soon.

Grosvenor House

Afternoon tea at Grosvenor House is a personal best for me. Coming in at second place after the Savoy hotel in London.
See why in my review of afternoon tea at Grosvenor house :


The spectacular indoor garden at the Landmark hotel is a wonderful setting for one of London's best afternoon tea experiences.
