Afternoon Tea


Many of our visitors to London want to have afternoon tea, a very English custom. This custom dates back to the mid 1800’s and now is very popular.

After a day visiting the sites of London with alondontourguide why not indulge yourself.


It is an opportunity to sit down and relax, think over the day. English Afternoon Tea consist of sandwiches, often egg and cress, ham, smoked salmon, or bread and butter followed by a selection of cakes and pastries and the best of all scones, jam and cream.When eating scones, do you put the butter on first, then the jam and the cream or butter, cream then the jam. You decide and enjoy.


In some restaurants they offer a variety of teas served in a tea pot. Many of the Hotels in London offer Afternoon tea. Have a look at this website for more information  www.afternoontea.co.uk
