Afternoon Tea and Shopping

One of the joys of being a tourist in London is to take afternoon tea, a typically English tradition. There are many inexpensive places which will serve tea and scones or whatever English confection may take your fancy but there are also those establishments which excel at this fine tradition. Should your purse allow, you might like to try afternoon tea at one of the famous hotels or at a leading food store.

Harrods, a name synonymous with luxury and one of the leading department stores in the world, this is a great place to visit and to shop.

The Ritz is the very epitome of luxury and as well as fine restaurants offers afternoon tea on a daily basis.

Fortnum and Mason, the leading store on Piccadilly offers the visitors the very best in food shopping as well as in fine dining.
