Afternoon Tea at the Ritz
Experience a true taste of British tradition at one of London’s most luxurious 5 star hotels, the Ritz on Piccadilly. Choose from 17 types of tea, eat exquisite cakes and sandwiches, and try delicious scones with clotted cream and jam. If you want to add a bit of sparkle, order some Champagne on the side.
London has more than 50 Michelin-Starred restaurants, serving some of the most delicious food around. Plus hundreds more, that make up one of the most exciting dining scenes in the world. Everyone is talking about Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social.
Brick Lane Curries
Brick Lane, in the heart of London’s East End, is lined with tempting curry restaurants all offering delicious and authentic South Asian cuisine at great prices. You might start a night out with a meal here and then move on to the cool bars and clubs around Spitalfields and Shoreditch.
A pint in an ancient ale house is an absolute must on any trip to London. There are hundreds, all with amazing stories to tell. Try the Olde Cheshire Cheese, a favourite of Dr Johnson and Arthur Conan Doyle. Its winding staircase and cosy interior are straight out of a Charles Dickens story.
