London's Prettiest Christmas Afternoon Teas

There is nowhere quite like London at Christmas time (just ask Richard Curtis), and there's also nothing as quintessentially British as an indulgent afternoon tea. So what better way to get yourself feeling all merry and bright (and capturing some great content for the 'gram while you're at it) than by indulging in some yuletide-themed afternoon tea? With offerings including crumbly mince pies, spicy gingerbread and minature alcohol-soaked puds, these treats will be going, going, scone before you know it. Take a look at our top picks for Christmas afternoon tea in London - pinkies at the ready.

The exclusive Egerton House Hotel will be opening its doors this festive season for an enchanting afternoon tea experience. Come December, the entrance to this hotel will be transformed into a Victorian shopfront, festooned with garlands and baubles. Sweet treats on offer will include stollen, gingerbread, mince pies and an unlimited choice of freshly brewed teas and coffees. 

Cahoots

Cahoots is known for its blitz spirit knees-up mentality. Located just off Carnaby Street, this 1940s style bar serves up 'squiffy picnics' on the weekend, presented in a wicker hamper and best washed down with one of Cahoots' signature cocktails (because everyone knows the tea is the least important part of afternoon tea).
