Amidst the leafy Georgian squares of Bloomsbury, The Grade II-listed Bloomsbury Hotel is a fittingly elegant location for an exquisite afternoon tea experience.

The 'Bloomsbury Set’ afternoon tea is inspired by original recipes from the 1920s and 1930s, and features the likes of almond financier, pecan & salted caramel chocolate slice, mascarpone & saffron cheesecake, freshly baked, plain & sultana buttermilk scones, and a vast range of teas from The Rare Tea Company.

For extra indulgence, add some English sparkling wine from Sussex’s Ridgeview vineyard.The surroundings are timelessly sophisticated, with rich red furnishings and elegant chandeliers throughout the hotel.

Close to The British Museum and the West End, The Bloomsbury Hotel in London is a 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    Food was good, including gluten and dairy free option, and portion sizes were spot on.
    Service left a little to be desired - only one waiter for approx. 15 to 20 tables. So teapots weren't refreshed, tea was not poured for us, had to request a 2nd glass of champagne - I expect all these things to happen automatically when I have paid for a high-quality afternoon tea. Needed at least two more staff members to serve in the lobby area.

    I did not know what afternoon tea is. Just that it is something a very english tradition . The atmosphere was very autentic, you felt set back in time, and I imagined how it may have been in the colloniel time. The waitor explained in a very kind manor what the different dishes was. It was delicius. Me and my son enjoyed it
