Complimentary & Unlimited Teas & Coffees when you join us for BREAKFAST and 2 other offers

If RuPaul did afternoon tea? We like to think it would look a little like this. The Perception's What's The Tea? is inspired by a drag queen's make-up box and comes complete with edible cosmetics, glitter-dipped sweets and brightly-bejewelled cakes. Better yet, whilst you're chowing down on this oh-so-glam selection there'll be tonnes of entertainment courtesy of the dazzling Globe Girls.

Located on the banks of the Thames, Lyaness is fancy with a capital F. Their tipsy tea menu can be enjoyed with either a selection of mocktails, a glass of Champagne or with four carefully curated pairing cocktails, all to the backdrop of stunning views across the capital city.
