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.

    Excellent service from the moment we walked in, to the tea itself. Staff was very kind and attentive. It was so wonderful! The tea was delicious too.

  • (((** 28 April 2017 by Ig from London

    Lovely restaurant and good service. Plenty of food. Unfortunately brioche bun was dry and chewy. So hard couldn't eat it. Cakes were a bit too sickly sweet and chocolate flavour was overpowering. Scones were the highlight. Churchill blend tea although smelt lovely did not deliver on flavour. Disappointing weak tea. As booked on a deal worth the money but wouldn't pay their usual prices. Unlikely to return.

    The live music was wonderful and the macaroons to die for.

  • ((((( 28 March 2017 by Brian Race from Royal Tunbridge Wells

    Excellent in all respects. We enjoyed the food and drink, the service was exemplary and the music very much to our taste.
    The only disappointment was that there were so few other guests.
