Searcys Travel Afternoon Tea St Pancras | Themed Afternoon Teas in London

It’s fair to say that 90% of my waking thoughts centre around travel in some form and I knew from the moment I heard about the Searcys Art Of Travel afternoon tea in St Pancras Station, that I wanted to pop in and try this iteration of themed afternoon teas in London. The only problem was that I was too busy travelling to book it in for an age…London

Luckily, one of my favourite partners-in-mischief rolled into London fresh from New York, which gave us the perfect excuse to daydream alongside the Eurostar trains rolling themselves to Paris, Brussels & The Netherlands.

So it’s only right that the popular afternoon tea at Searcy’s St Pancras is travel-themed.

We snuggled into our booth, especially glad of the cosily placed blanket on our January afternoon.

Perusing the tea and champagne menus – very much intending to use the ‘press for champagne’ bell as often as the under-seat heater buttons – we settled in for a proper catch-up.

The afternoon tea menu plays on delicacies from a handful of European cities – all served in a stylish travel suitcase. That I may have threatened to ‘borrow’.

The scrummy afternoon tea menu includes a Burford Brown egg mayonnaise bun, smoked salmon warm crumpet, York ham and wholegrain mustard, and delicious homemade scones. For those looking for a healthy twist before their holidays, the platter also includes an avocado and quinoa wrap which ended up being voted the surprise favourite by both of us.

With the Eurostar so achingly close, St Pancras’ brand-new afternoon tea menu gives a taste of travels to come, delighting guests with the classic French Opera gâteau, Belgian white chocolate mousse, passion fruit Swiss meringue pie and more.

Sipping our flutes and exploring the cocktail menu as the evening drew in…

…it was difficult not to lose time, even with the beautiful St Pancras station clock behind us.

Would I recommend the Art of Travel afternoon tea at Searcys St Pancras as one of my favourite themed afternoon teas in London? 100%. It was clever, delectable and exceedingly well priced – not to mention the lengthy champagne menu which was a sight to behold, even mentioning Epernay where I’d recently explored.

What was your favourite afternoon tea of 2019?
