Afternoon Tea, Grosvenor House

Elegant and sumptuous Afternoon Teas are synonymous with British culinary etiquette. Grosvenor House, a five-star hotel under the banner of J. W. Marriott, offers one of the most coveted Afternoon Teas in all of London.

A fitting tribute to an English tradition

The stylish custom of Afternoon Tea dates back to the early nineteenth century and has survived the vagaries of time. A few institutions like Grosvenor House continue to celebrate this iconic British tradition – cakes, crumpets and all.

And, you don’t have to stretch your little finger out while sipping your tea. The etiquette experts have concurred that it is a misconception. 🙂
