Afternoon Tea couldn’t be more English and more deliciously indulgent. Each year we play host to a whole week celebrating the joy of afternoon tea.

We indulge in the immersive, the elegant, the fish inspired. There is even something for the fashionista’s. Mr B loves his afternoon tea – probably his favourite meal of the day, so I have tried a fair few and this year the choices are fantastic and equally different.

My selection for 2023 is a pick and mix of 7 places in London to enjoy Afternoon Tea week. You can also find an updated afternoon tea guide with many more options on my Instagram Guide page.

Choices for Afternoon Tea Week

A visual feast at The Calton Tower

Probably the most surprising afternoon tea I’ve ever had. A Tribute to Nature is beautifully presented, exquisite decor in the Chinoiserie. It is an unusually different and an afternoon tea that really plays with your tastebuds. One not to be sniffed at, just eaten!

Design it at The W Hotel

My most recent afternoon tea at The W Hotel, was a showstopper for the pastries alone. A brand new afternoon tea created and designed by Bake Off chef Leyre Pedrazuela Otera for London Design Week. They are as delicious as they look.
