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.

Everything I thought afternoon tea would be! I wish I could remember our servers name, but she was wonderful. She catered to me because I have limited hearing so she would lean over to me to make sure I heard what she was saying. Such a lovely young woman! Many of the fictional books I read as a younger woman always had Grosvenor House, Hyde Park, Covent Gardens and Bath in them so how delightful to get to visit these places I had read about. Treat yourself to afternoon tea in this lovely old hotel!
We had stayed at the Grosvenor House before hand thought this would be a nice opportunity to visit it again. The service staff were excellent if a bit slow by American standards. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was ok, a little dry enough for two people.
My only complaint was the chair I was in was very uncomfortable. Apparently the lady at a table next to mine thought so too, because she swapped with her husband.
