There are scores of places offering afternoon tea, I suspect that it is mostly us foreigners that are driving the demand, most places are located in hotels or in department stores such as Harrod's or Fortnum & Mason. I thought the menu at Mandeville looked to be one of the nicest so we selected that one out of the possibilities that Courtney had looked at.

I was a little surprised that there were only three tables filled for tea, I had thought with the royal wedding that they would all be packed. We sat there for hours chatting over a couple of pots of tea and a lovely tray of sandwiches and sweets.

The Mandeville Hotel is very close to shopping on Oxford Street or you can also visit the Wallace Collection before heading over.

Favorite Dish: Afternoon tea is £26.50 per person, £33 if you also want to have champagne. Like most afternoon teas, they deliver a lovely tiered tray with finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and an assortment of pastries and cakes along with your choice of tea, allserved on Royal Daulton China designed by Zandra Rhodes. Ours was a special tea in honor of the royal nuptials but the menu is very similar for tea on a regular day.
