Afternoon tea has always been a much-loved British tradition. With hit TV shows like The Great British Bake Off back on our screens, our sweet tooth is calling out for cake- and lots of it!

National Afternoon Tea Week runs from the 11-17 August and hosts a week of celebrations and activities. Hotels offer themed menus and discounts in restaurants and tearooms across the UK.

If rolling up your sleeves and getting contents of baking ingredients stuck in your hair doesn’t sound appealing. Indulge in cakes and champagne all afternoon in London’s top hotels.
