    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.

Disclosure – this time we were guests of Aqua Shard but all thoughts are as ever my own.

    Savoy Hotel Afternoon Tea | The Limited Edition The Tiger Came To Tea

    Over the years I been lucky enough to have breakfasted, brunched, lunched, dined and sipped cocktails in this beautiful 5-star hotel, but I was missing one important meal to finish my clutch – the Savoy Hotel afternoon tea.* It was on my afternoon tea bucket list, but I hadn’t quite figured out the best excuse to book in for an afternoon of indulgence.

    Luckily, we were genuinely influenced** to book an afternoon tea here, after seeing a friend of ours (a dumpling obsessed, exquisite photographer – you know who you are) visit as a guest of the hotel, and planned the date over a series of increasingly excited messages.

    Four Seasons Afternoon Tea | The Burlington

    Park Lane is a beautiful place to while away an afternoon, especially when a stand filled with Four Seasons Afternoon Tea delicacies has been gently placed before you. Disclosure: we were guests of the Four Seasons Hotel, but all my musings are very much original.
