Best Value Traditional English Afternoon Tea

When visiting London one of the not to be missed and most popular experiences is a traditional English afternoon tea at a top London hotel, with all the trimmings; freshly baked scones, Devonshire cream, fruit preserves, finely cut sandwiches and a wide selection of exotic teas.

Booked separately prices vary and it can be a little expensive, however included with other attractions makes it much better value.

For example here is a great tour including Buckingham Palace that opened to the public last week for the summer, combined with a splendid afternoon tea at the top hotel, The Grosvenor at Victoria.
