  • Had Tea there last week and totally enjoyed it. The service was fantastic and the tea was so enjoyable that we finished up early and went downstairs to purchase the tea we'd just had!

  • This is a bit of very English England. The place to buy gourmet souveniers to take abroad. You can choose from a huge range of tea in the most delightful tea caddies. If you fancy an unforgettable picnic, order their Ultimate Banquet Picnic and have it delivered to a suitable place. This is also a great place for brunch, afternoon tea.
  • Traditional high tea. Perfect for the tourist tea-lover like my sister and me. On the pricey side but worth the splurge to get that traditional high tea experience. Love the Tiffany Blue silverware. Biscuits are so good here and you can keep the jam and lemon curd they give you (the lemon curd is soo good). Unlimited sandwiches and desserts. The cakes weren't that good (didn't fancy the Victorian cake too much) but it could have also been that we were so stuffed on tea and sandwiches and biscuits. We also bought a few teas to take home as well which were really nice.
  • Best Afternoon tea experience ever, terribly expensive as well :) Staff are great, tea is amazingly good and well prepared and all the snacks and cakes are really well catered. Has a shop downstairs in case you want to take any of the tea (or a ton of other things) home.
  • I've had high tea at several places around London and Fortnum & Mason is by far my favorite. They have beautiful decor and huge selection of tea. Their 4th floor Diamond Jubilee Tea is lovely and I absolutely loved their tea and scones. They also allow you to take home your leftovers, which is always exciting (some other places do not allow this). My favorite is their Parlour on 2nd floor where you can get affordable tea (around 5 pounds per pot) - great for casual tea.
  • This place feels truly regal. Wonderfully looking and tasting delicacies, in packaging that makes them look from a different time and world. Prices are not low, but you will enjoy spending some money in this store.
