Generations have fallen in love with our afternoon tea. One guest describes her favourite treats in life, as handed down from her mother, as “marmalade spread on bread and butter pudding, sneaking off to the movies on rainy days… and Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester.”

Taking tea at The Promenade, surrounded by luxury, tradition and delicious cakes, is the true definition of a day in London spent well.
