The Ritz London – Afternoon Tea in The Palm Court
No visit to London is complete without afternoon tea at The Ritz. This British tradition is full of glamour and nostalgia, transporting you back to the lavish times when high society reigned.
The experience is completed with impeccably dressed waiters serving an endless bounty of artistically crafted petit fours, delicately delicious finger sandwiches, buttery scones, and fine teas served from silver tea pots into elaborately decorated fine bone china tea cups.
The experience is a truly memorable one that must not be missed. We recommend booking a month or two in advance to secure a coveted weekend afternoon sitting.
Where// The Palm Court at The Ritz London, 150 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9BR
