High Tea in London with Kids

High Tea in London

Traveling to London with kids? You can't miss indulging them in a luxury high tea experience! Afternoon tea is a centuries-old tradition in London and most kids love the fancy service with flourish and scrumptious food, making them feel like real British Royalty or the upper class that they read about in books or see in movies.

On our ongoing family world tour, our daughter has been to quite a few in many destinations ( including at the Four Seasons Hotel in Jordan)  and loves them, plus everyone should try to-die-for  clotted cream and scones at least once in life.

Whether you want a "proper" afternoon tea experience ( expensive) or just happily enjoying Brit-style sandwhiches, scones and tea in a less formal way ( cheaper) there are endless choices in London.

We had an amazing and very luxurious and fancy high tea with old friends at the posh Cliveden House, but there are plenty of other choices. Here are a few:

Hi, I like your travellers tales,but you are getting mixed up between what is known as "afteroon tea" -which is what you had and what those restaurants are offering. "High Tea" is a completely different meal, involving a plate of cooked food as well as a pot of tea and perhaps cakes, etc. High tea is a traditional working class/'blue collar' meal, taken in late afternoon or early evening.
