@ Cellar Door on Every Saturday

High tea and tease serve their offering with a big side of kinky and seductive burlesque and cabaret from some huge stars. Work your way through an unusual afternoon tea in London while black magicians, a show girl, and a honky-tonky piano player dazzle you.

Head over to Soho every Sunday where you'll find one of the quirkiest afternoon teas in London. The Phoenix Arts Club will be sorting you out with tiers of sweet treats and fine fizz, as well as a hilarious cabaret show.

Topping the list of unusual afternoon teas in London is Brigit's Afternoon Tea Ltd, a vintage red bus that roams round the city's most iconic sites all while you work your way through tasty goodness. Glide by Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall as you enjoy treats such as sandwiches, cakes and macaroons.

Already one of London's most unique dining experiences, Bustronome now offer an equally tantalising afternoon tea. See the sights of London from the upper-deck with a platter full of minature eggs benedicts, finger sandwiches and tiny sweet treats.
