London's Prettiest Christmas Afternoon Teas

There is nowhere quite like London at Christmas time (just ask Richard Curtis), and there's nothing as British as an indulgent afternoon tea. So what better way to get yourself feeling all merry and bright (and get some great content for the 'gram) than by indulging in some yuletide-themed drinking and dining? With offerings including crumbly mince pies, spicy gingerbread and miniature alcohol-soaked puds, these pretty Christmas afternoon teas will be going, going, scone before you know it.

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

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