Afternoon Tea at the Hilton

With all things vintage has become an amazing fad of late, so has the art of afternoon tea. When trying to think of an original birthday present for my mum, I came across Tea for Two (£38) at the Hilton Wardorf Hotel, Covent Gardens. As it is one of creme de la creme of London Hotels I jumped at the opportunity to practice the art of afternoon tea-ing within its very exclusive walls. Once booked I had already started thinking about the possible outfits that could be worn to such an event.

Restaurant Entrance
I boarded the train wearing a simple polka -dot dress, Ray Bans and my high heeled Chelsea boots (city chic meets posh afternoon tea drinker) I headed to one of my favourite places in the world; Covent Gardens. After a quick look around, mainly in the Dune store (has to be done right?) We realized we had to make our way to the Hilton Wardorf to make our 3:00 pm reservation. Luckily, the hotel was only across from the Royal Opera House and hard to miss. On arrival we were greeted by sparkling chandlers and darling interior, not to mention the friendly staff who guided us to the restaurant.
Tea Anyone?
Once seated around our beautifully set table, complete with gold China, we received our first glass of Champagne and the tea menu. Soon to follow were the perfectly cut sandwiches ranging from tomatoes in tomato bread, ham and hollandaise, salmon and of course cucumber. While we sat and enjoyed the sandwiches and champagne, taking in our surroundings, a musician sat and played on the harp positioned by the door.
Sandwiches eaten, our tea order was taken. In fact I was very impressed by the variety of teas from afternoon tea, green tea, wildflower, red bush, nutty chocolate infused tea , jasmine tea were just some of the selection. But we hadn't finished yet, next the cakes (secretly what I'd been waiting for) again a lovely selection including pastries, scones,declares, meringue to cream and shortbread. Needless to say the array didn't not disappoint.
Selection of Sandwiches

Once finished, the experience had taken about 1 hour and 30 minutes and didn't disappoint. We left with full stomachs and a feeling of grandeur; every girls dream! We had said that if we were to go again we would couple the tea with a show at the theatre to finish the experience but if you are looking for something to do that's a  little different in London or looking to be wined a dined through afternoon tea I have would highly recommend The Hilton Wardorf Hotel!
