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.

    Loved the Churchill blend tea. Thought the service was outstanding. Every item on the service was scrumptious.

  • ((((( 21 December 2017 by DG from London

    A wonderful, relaxing afternoon tea. The food and the service were both 5 star, and I would recommend without hesitation.

    Super nice place, friendly staff and good food. A friend of mine was lactose intolerant so they prepared everything special for her.

    Haven't done afternoon tea for awhile and this was so good. Have tried many of the well known venues and this was up there with the best. Excellent service, friendly, polite but not over the top. Teapots and cups changed half way through to refresh tea and new choice offered. Scones were warm, freshly cooked and delicious. plenty of clotted cream and an unusual addition of lemon curd/custard. More sandwiches brought as soon as we finished and a very classy doggy bag to take home (focacica bread very good). Loved the quirky Churchill cigars (filo pastry wrapped around chocolate)
    Had been to exhibition at Queen's Gallery so location of hotel was perfect,.

    Fantastic afternoon tea. Attention to detail was superb. Favourite savoury was foccaccia roll and sweet was macaroon. Only slight negative was that the pianist was a little too loud.
