If you going to treat yourself to afternoon tea at Christmas, Claridge's is the place to do it as they've been a specialist at the nations culinary heritage for the best part of 150 years.
For a century or more, the Executive Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones served warm, and sweet pastries. The ingredients are painstakingly sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day.
The centrepiece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. The wonderful tea connoisseur, Henrietta Lovell, has scoured the world to bring a delicious tea from small, little known producers from the four corners of the world.
Set in the splendour of Thierry Despont’s magnificent Foyer, inspired by the 1930s’ heyday of art deco, Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s is truly a magical experience.
