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.

We arrived half an hour earlier because it was raining outside, but they welcomed us without any problem. Nice place, good food, especially sandwiches. I will suggest it!

Tea was lovely -- good food, plenty of it, delicious tea -- and a wonderful pianist. Attentive service but not obtrusive.

My entire family agreed that the afternoon tea was outstanding. The decor was gorgeous and the service was absolutely superb! We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful live piano music, which set the perfect tone for the entire experience. Our afternoon tea at The Wellesley was one of the highlights of our entire stay in London!
