NewsTry an afternoon tea inspired by London landmarks

October 15, 20200
The Kensington hotel reopened on 14 October and has brought back its London Landmarks afternoon tea

 

The hotel, which is made up of four townhouses in South Kensington, marked its re-opening with a floral installation at its entrance.

The Chelsea florist Lavender Green arranged an autumnal blend of anemone, verdure and red, orange and brown leaves.

Its London Landmarks afternoon tea is served in its dining room.

It comes with a map of the landmarks, illustrated by Eleni Sofroniou, which you can take home with you.

Savoury bites

The meal is served on a three-tier stand in the shape of the London Eye.

Start with Stilton and broccoli quiche, followed by steak and ale pie. You can also try a bite-size crab cake served with tartare sauce and caperberries.

Scones

Next, slather Heather Hills Farm strawberry jam and clotted cream on to warm scones.

Sweets

Finish with a lemon curd tart Big Ben and a rhubarb mousse in the form of a red telephone box.

In addition to these treats, you can also sample The Shard – carrot cake and milk chocolate – and The Gherkin: dark chocolate ganache encased in white chocolate.

If you’d like to linger, order Champagne and cocktails in the softly-lit K Bar, which features wood-panelled walls and a smoky blue glass ceiling.
