A Guilt-free Afternoon Tea at The Intercontinental Hotel

As far as afternoon teas go, I’d like to say I’ve ticked off some of the leaders of the pack during my time in London. I do love a crust-less sandwich, perfect pastry and traditional scone, but I’m ready for something new and exciting. Cue, the guiltless afternoon tea – a wholesome indulgence, at the prestigious Intercontinental Hotel – Park Lane. Read more…
