Start here with our guide to the prettiest Christmas afternoon teas in London.

Rhythm Kitchen

Rhythm Kitchen in Walthamstow are hosting a series of Christmas Caribbean afternoon teas, complete with a glass of prosecco and a rum cocktail. On top of this you'll tuck into mango-glazed chicken wings, handmade spiced scones and more, all for £60.

Hotel Café Royal

Hotel Café Royal is famed for its luxurious afternoon tea offerings, with its Christmas version featuring duck liver sandwiches, cherry cake, pudding vanilla tart and 25 types of tea. Feeling extra festive? Add a glass of Champagne for a little extra yuletide spirit. 

The Ritz London

When it comes to festive frolics, you can't beat a Christmas afternoon tea at The Ritz. An upmarket experience in The Palm Court, you'll be treated to pastries, mince pies and more, in some of the city's most elegant surroundings. Carols? Oh yeah, there's a choir singing those too.
