Luxury London with Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf Hilton
Limited Sundays in 2019 - Book now
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.
Limited availability on selected Sundays in 2019
