This Afternoon Tea Is Probably The Most ‘London’ Thing You Can Do

There are so many afternoon teas in London, but few are quite as apt as the Town House’s new offering.

Town House at The Kensington have just launched their rather marvellous London-themed afternoon tea, inspired by London’s most famous and historic landmarks.

Scoff on the Gherkin, which has been recreated with white chocolate filled with a dark chocolate ganache, or take a bite out of the Shard, made from carrot cake and milk chocolate. Big Ben is a tasty lemon curd tart, while the iconic red telephone box is a tasty rhubarb mousse. Oh and, of course, there are scones with jam and clotted cream. (Sadly not in the shape of City Hall, but they’re an essential part of afternoon tea so we’ll let them off.)

Even the savouries represent London in some way, with a broad selection of classics and cockney staples, including steak and London ale pie, stilton and broccoli quiche, coronation chicken sarnies, and so much more.

It’s all served on a London Eye-inspired stand, which is pretty epic, tbh. And, besides delicious cakes, you’ll also be given a gorgeous illustrated map to take home.

The tea costs £42 per person or £54.50 with a glass of Perrier-Jouët. It’s served every day from 12pm–6pm and you can book here
