POSH AFTERNOON TEA – it’s the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just to treat yourself!

As our pre-Christmas Afternoon Tea had to be cancelled, you may like to join us for this SPECIAL January treat in the luxurious surroundings of a choice of TWO top Mayfair Afternoon Tea Rooms. We have limited availability at FORTNUM & MASON, Piccadilly and HARRODS, Knightsbridge – a relaxing treat after shopping ’til you drop at London’s famous January Sales! You also have the chance to visit the spectacular sumptuous Wallace Collection in Manchester Square (just 5 mins walk from the Oxford Street Sales!

You will enjoy a large selection of different types of loose-leaf tea, servings of delicate finger sandwiches, delicious pastries, mouth-watering cakes and of course freshly made scones with  clotted cream & fruit preserves.

YOUR EXCITING DAY IN LONDON
from your preferred  local pick-up on our executive, luxury coach, you will be whisked up to London and dropped off in Manchester Square (or Knightsbridge) for a timed visit to the exquisite Wallace Collection in Hertford House, where you can spend as little or as much time as you like.  With Oxford Street just a few minutes walk away,  there will be plenty of eateries to choose from for lunch and you may want to take this opportunity of some grabbing some bargains at the January Sales – which will probably  bemuch quieter than usual too! 

The coach will meet you late afternoon for the transfer to Piccadilly and a much deserved posh Afternoon Tea! Choose from:

Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly, Diamond Jubilee Tea Room: (just 1 place left as of 03 November)
One of London’s most famous destinations for Afternoon Tea, the history of Fortnum & Mason reaches back to 1707 and since that time it has specialised in providing the finest produce and service. Afternoon Tea is served in the relaxed and elegant surroundings of The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon opened in 2012 by HM the Queen, accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge.

As a retreat from London’s hustle and bustle, The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon is a little heaven! With the peaceful piano playing in the background, dining table or sofa seating creates a serene ambiance. Add a decadent glass of champagne for just £14.95! (order & pay locally)

Harrods Restaurant:
Experience a quintessential Afternoon Tea in Mayfair at
the new Harrods Tea Rooms, temporarily relocated to the Ground Floor. Chefs bringback a selection of favourites from the menu, and of course their  world-famous teas.

Settle in for a tiered selection of mouthwatering treats, from delicate finger sandwiches and freshly baked scones to picture-perfect patisserie with copious amounts of Earl Grey, Hawaiian Black, Arishan Tai Milky Oolong, Superior Sencha and more.

The Wallace Collection visit

The Wallace Collection is a spectacular and interesting museum in London occupying Hertford House, the former townhouse of the Seymour family, Marquesses of Hertford.  If you have never visited, it’s a little gem!
The historic house is named after Sir Richard Wallace, who built the extensive collection, along with the Marquesses of Hertford, in the 18th and 19th centuries. We have timed entries from 1215 until 1315.

Shopping in Oxford Street 
With your drop-off just 5-minutes north of Oxford Street, at The Wallace Collection in Manchester Square, you will have plenty of time at the Sales! This year London should be less crowded than normal, so it’s an ideal opportunity to visit your favourite flagship stores amid all the fun and festive flare that will bring London to life!

DRESS CODE:

Posh Afternoon Tea in London is a special occasion for most people at any time, but the hotels (except The Ritz), do not tend to enforce a strict dress code. In keeping with the relaxed, but refined atmosphere of these tea rooms, the most guests tend to prefer ‘smart-casual’ attire – and a good excuse not to wear jeans or trainers!

Gratuities are at your discretion, according to the service experienced – normally 10% -12.5% (approx £5/£7.50pp) 

INCLUSIVE PriceS:
Harrods: £138 pp
Fortnum & Mason: £138 pp
Coach+Wallace Collection: £53 pp
Coach-Only: £48 pp
