What You Can Expect

London Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor House

Grosvenor House Afternoon Tea

Select your desired afternoon tea option when you book. Then, on the day, make your own way to London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, one of the city’s most distinguished addresses, with a history that stretches back to 1929. 

On arrival, linger over of one of England’s greatest institutions — afternoon tea. This much-loved ritual owes its existence to the 18th-century Anna Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, and great friend of Queen Victoria. Finding that the era’s fashion for ever-later dinners left her feeling peckish during the afternoon, Anna began partaking of tea and cakes to fill the gap. The custom quickly caught on, and soon established itself as a convivial ritual of fashionable London society.

Today, the most prestigious afternoon teas are served at London’s top hotels, such as the 5-star Grosvenor House, where your experience takes place in an atmosphere of calm elegance at your desired time between 2pm and 6pm on your chosen day.

Traditional Afternoon Tea:
With this option, sit down to a traditional light tea served in the Grosvenor House library. Soak up the polished yet homely surroundings of this elegant room, and enjoy a delicious menu of freshly cut sandwiches with their crusts removed; fluffy scones with clotted cream and fruit jams; and exquisite pastries, all teamed with a pot of classic English tea.

Anna’s Champagne Afternoon Tea:
Upgrade for the ultimate afternoon tea experience in the sumptuous comfort of the Grosvenor House Park Room. Absorb the views of Hyde Park and be serenaded by light music from the house pianist as you’re served a luxurious tea inspired by the legacy of Duchess Anna. Savor dainty finger sandwiches, melt-in-the-mouth buttermilk scones, delicate cream puffs and dinky pastries, and sip on your selection from a choice of fine English teas. A glass of chilled Champagne provides an enchanting finishing touch.

Your traditional or Champagne afternoon tea experience ends when you finish your tea.

I will come back to this wonderful place every time I am in London. I love doing High teas, the importance of variety, multiple but uncomplicated choices and being able to just relax and be spoilt in very comfortable surroundings is the reason I rate the High tea at Grosvenor House as one of the very best.
The service here is exceptional, all the staff are brilliant under the fine leadership of the very charming Emmanuel, they all took care of our High Tea needs and there was a vast and varied selection. The teas where Superb, the champagne flowed and was sublime, and we were able to talk, chat, catch up, laugh and have fun whilst being taken care of by efficient non intrusive guest service staff, which meant wehad a superb time, relaxing and very comfortable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Wonderful place for tea - especially first timers! I was originally reserved for a table in the far back corner of the tea room, but the hostess was nice enough to move to a table in front of the window for a better view. Staff was very helpful, and the experience! Worth having a visit!

Absolutely Wonderful! Great Location and staff was superbly 'afternoon tea' oriented! Expect to feel very special while not feeling like you are in a show. It isa true afternoon tea at a very - very elegant location. They also gave us a gift while leaving - another piece of cake - of our choice - for later! Will be remembered. Went to several afternoon teas while in London - this was by fay the most elegant.
