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.

    Booked a table as a birthday treat for a friend and was not disappointed. Loved the piano playing in the back ground. Excellent service from the staff.

    We were made very welcome from the start. The service was excellent and the food delicious. Perhaps a little too attentive at times (I,ve never drunk so much tea ) The pianist played beautifully and quietly in the corner. All in all a very pleasant afternoon

    Excellent service, very good food, even a surprise birthday cake if you come to celebrate a birthday! Portions are great. And the churchill blended tea is exquisite! Nice intimate atmosphere with live piano. I highly recommend this address

    My New Year's Day was spent having afternoon tea at the Wellesley and I must say I was extremely impressed with the service and the food and drink. Everything about this hotel is perfect so I would 100% recommend this hotel for not only afternoon tea but for all the rest that it offers. Thank you Wellesley for the lovely experience.
