With exotic teas carefully selected by a resident tea connoisseur, afternoon tea at The Wellesley is the hotel’s contemporary take on the timeless British tradition. A shimmering art deco setting in a renovated 1920s townhouse, The Wellesley is a modern addition to London’s luxury hotel scene.

Afternoon tea at the Wellesley in Knightsbridge is served in the intimate and atmospheric Jazz Lounge. Classic silver stands are laden with delicate homemade finger sandwiches, warm raisin scones from the bakery and an assortment of dainty pastries, while, for the ultimate decadence, add Brut, Rose or Grand Kuvee Krug champagne and a handful of fresh strawberries.

Carefully chosen from the finest tea estates in the world, loose leaf teas at The Wellesley hotel in London are elegantly presented in a polished wooden box. They are then aromatically brewed in a clear glass tea pot and served in sophisticated gold-rimmed glass tea cups.

The Wellesley is at number 11 Knightsbridge, a 3-minute walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station. The suggested attire for afternoon tea is smart casual.

    This was a lovely treat - the food was delicious and it kept coming! We had the Brut Champagne tea - expensive but it was a birthday celebration and the champagne made it special. Leftover cakes were wrapped for us to take home in a posh bag. Service was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. We were sitting under an air-conditioning vent and were rather cold - staff turned the a/c down, adjusted the table layout so we would be further away from the vent, and offered us a different table too. The 16.30 sitting is the last one of the day and they didn't rush us out at 18.30 - we stayed chatting and eating until 19.00. Afternoon tea is served in an internal room, so no view, but it's bright and plush. It's a shame about the drafts - next time I'll bring a cardigan! All in all, a great, indulgent afternoon!

    Superb afternoon tea with glass of champagne. Could not have been more helpful. We enjoyed all the sandwiches especially the mini brioche buns, the scones and the cakes. Lovely room with piano playing.

    Our tea was amazing and so personal. All of the food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. We loved the extra step the Wellesley took to celebrate my daughter and my birthdays.
