Afternoon Tea at Number Sixteen hotel is an elegant and luxurious affair. With the option to take tea in any of the public spaces, from the library to the tree-filled hotel garden, there is a setting for every weather and occasion.

The Number Sixteen menu covers classic afternoon tea with the usual sandwiches and scones on offer, as well as some lesser-seen creations, such as arancini, accompanied by sweet options such as Bakewell tart. A lighter option on offer is the ‘fruit tea’, which consists of 5 plates of colourful treats themed around blueberries, orange, lime zest and honey. A gluten-free tea is available on request.

The stunning landscaped garden offers a blissful escape from the bustle of London, whilst the colourful drawing room full of modern, decorative art and bright pink fabrics, is a funky, laidback setting. The cosy library and light-flooded conservatory are also open for afternoon tea at Number 16 in London.

Number Sixteen is situated in the heart of South Kensington, with the museums on its doorstep, and South Kensington Tube Station just a 2-minute walk away.

    Loved the fish and chips. The afternoon tea was good but I was expecting better pastries.

    Afternoon tea in the garden on a sunny day! The service was very good and the cakes were very tempting! We had to ask for hot water, which I think should always be provided with a pot of tea! Also extra pots should have been offered However, very enjoyable experience in a quirky environment

    Lovely afternoon tea, the service was very good and our dietary needs (wheat and lactose free) were well catered for. The orangerie is nicely decorated, very bright, and a good size. The caramalised bananas were a personal favorite, but the gluten free cakes were good too.
