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.

    Afternoon tea was delicious as was the champagne! The scones were freshly baked and came out separately when we ready so they were still warm. They were definitely the best I've ever had as they were so light. Tea was refreshed as needed and the staff were attentive but not overly so. Highly recommended.

    This is my second visit to the Wellesley and I would highly recommend the afternoon tea. It is good value and lovely food. Service is attentive and nothing too much trouble. Really enjoyable.

    Exquisite food, exemplary service and excellent surroundings. My favourite place for afternoon tea in London never disappoints and always maintains the highest standards. The Churchill blend tea is sublime, please start selling it so I can enjoy it at home too. The jazz pianists are terrific too - wonderful music but never obtrusive. I have still not yet managed to eat all of one tea serving, let alone managed seconds but I do enjoy the challenge!

    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.
