The highlight of this tour is afternoon tea at The Waldorf Hilton, but what is Afternoon Tea?

“Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.

Afternoon Tea is a meal composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into ‘fingers’), scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes. Interestingly, scones were not a common feature of early Afternoon Tea and were only introduced in the twentieth century.”

We have a great venue for you in Central London, at the iconic Waldorf Hilton Hotel, located in the capital’s vibrant West End and enjoy a one night stay including English Breakfast and Afternoon Tea.

Suggested itinerary

Day 1

London and the Waldorf Hilton with Afternoon Tea

Arrive in London in the afternoon and check into your luxury hotel. Afternoon Tea will be served to your group at around 2pm (time to be confirmed). You can check-in to your room from 3pm and the rest of the day is your own. Why not enjoy a leisurely swim in the hotel pool, a visit to the theatre to see a show or just take a stroll to Covent Garden.

Afternoon Tea Menu

Assortment of Finger Sandwiches:

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese (Brown bread)

Ham and Mustard (Onion bread)

Egg and Watercress (Basil bread)

Tomato and Cheese (Mediterranean bread)

Cheese and Cucumber (Carrot bread)


Homemade Scones with Devonshire Clotted Cream and Preserve


Homemade Delicate Pastry


Selection of finest Teas and Infusions

Dress code for afternoon tea is smart casual – no jeans.

After your tea, maybe take a stroll to Covent Garden – it’s just a few minutes’ walk away, or walk down to the Thames (less than 10 minutes’ walk) – you couldn’t ask for a better location.

There are also a few shows on Sunday evenings in the West End, please contact us for up to date information and prices.

Day 2

London with optional circular cruise, London Eye trip and return home

Enjoy a traditional English breakfast; you then have some free time to explore the sites of the Capital. We recommend taking a circular cruise on the Thames and follow this with a visit to the London Eye (supplement from £25.00 per person), or alternatively how about rounding your weekend off with a Monday morning visit to a Smoked Salmon factory in East London – see our “Smokey Old London” Tour for more details of this:

Leave London at your leisure to return home.
