English Tea and London Holidays


London, the city of crown jewels and historic forts and palaces, is characterized by rituals and traditions. It is indeed a wonderful idea to indulge in such traditions to get an insight of the ancient British culture that has been so well preserved even by the city’s modern generations.
To spend a quality afternoon in London, you must enjoy the English tea at one of its best tea rooms during your holiday. The British capital boasts hundreds of cafes, many of which are more than a century old, where tea is still served in traditionally laid back, yet elegant style. It is a timeless experience that calls for you to wear your best attire and sip your tea in a royal setting out of eye-catching antique china cups.
Enjoying the English tea becomes a highly rewarding experience when it is served with scrumptious British delicacies. Many prefer a scone with clotted cream or a layer of jam on it while others love to gorge on traditional crustless finger sarnie. At many highly rated tea cafes guests are also served with tartins and baguettes. Go for dainty pastries or finger sandwiches to steep in the British style and elegance while sipping your classic English tea. Some ideal places where drinking afternoon tea is not less than an art include The Orangery ( Kensington Palace), Bea’s of Bloomsbury (Theobalds Road), Gallery Mess (Saatchi Gallery) and Rex Whistler Restaurant at Tate Britain.
You may as well choose to stay at a hotel that features a bar or café where guests are served English afternoon tea. Whats more, you can even find a café that caters to your budget. So, go ahead
