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.

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 a blast with our afternoon tea. My husband really enjoyed it and we felt quite pampered. We do not like seafood so the wonderful staff were quite accommodating with other options. It was a nice break from the hustle bustle of our adventures. This was a real treat and we are glad we tried it.
