Afternoon tea


Had such a lovely day on Saturday. Here are a few photos - we were too busy eating to take too many and the lovely waitress took the one of us with our champagne.  the first one shows the "living wall" outside the Athenaeum hotel which is it's feature.
We started with sandwiches and had two servings before moving onto the orange blossom scones with jam, lemon curd cream and clotted cream. Then we had cakes (all those aren't mine only the violet cupcake and the champagne jelly!). then we had toasted crumpets and butter followed by our champagne as we are both too sensible to have it on an empty stomach. We enjoyed it so much we have decided to do it again in December when it is my birthday but choose a different hotel (probably try them all eventually!).

How marvellous Lynn - I think drinking tea in the great Hotels of London may be a whole album of its own! Fab idea, so glad you had such a great day.

Oo-er get you! A lady wot lunches lol There's nothing I enjoy more than High Tea (so English too isn't it?) - it's the perfect way to spend an afternoon I think! (even John Lewis do one now, the sandwiches are a bit naff though lol) Make sure you add The Ritz to your list - it's the ultimate high tea experience! Thanks for sharing these fab photos :) xxx
