Afternoon Tea at The Savoy!

If you are looking for something fancy pants to do in London, whether it be for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary or just because, then I would thoroughly recommend booking up (well in advance mind) afternoon Tea at one of London’s most famous and breathtaking hotels, The Savoy.

Ranked up there with the likes of the Ritz and The Dorchester, The Savoy, with all its old world charm, is one of London’s most famous and universally recognized hotels.  And from £40 per person, you can enjoy the delights of its 5 star service in the form of its infamous ‘Afternoon Tea’.  Having taken my Mother last weekend (birthday outing – and yes, I did score Amazing Daughter Points) we rocked up and, after scanning the selection of sparkly rocks on display in the Hotel ‘gift shop’ otherwise known as Boodles we settled down to, well, the BEST tea, cakes, tea, pastries, tea, finger sandwiches and more tea I have ever experienced in my life.  Seriously, I don’t think China had any tea left.  I drank it all.  While we celebrated a birthday, so apparently did about 6 others, and if you mention that it’s that special day, you will be treated to a slice of very fine birthday cake after you’ve managed to get through all the sugary treats!

And while I was banned from doing my amazing fork in the napkin magic trick, which is usually reserved for Nandos and fast food joints, I did have to remember that the waiters aren’t being fresh when they ‘tuck you in’ to your seat.  If this is how the other half live, well I am sure I will be able to get used to it.  If only Prince Harry would return my fan mail…
