afternoon tea course at the ritz hotel
The Ladies’ Afternoon Tea Course at The Ritz Hotel in London is a two-hour experience filled with decadent delights! Join Emma and a small group of like-minded ladies for this quintessential British pastime of Afternoon Tea within the Palm Court at The Ritz Hotel, London.
Providing the elegance and charm of a by-gone era, afternoon tea at The Ritz is an experience not to be missed, with immaculately presented waiters flitting amongst the tables that are topped with pretty chinaware and gleaming silver tea services, and the resident pianist playing the soundtrack to accompany it all. The Palm Court itself is an elegant salon originally destined for glamorous guests from high society, and it still remains the most quintessential British venue for this delicious past time.
From the marriage of Kings Charles II to Catherine of Braganza, to Anna Maria Russell the 7th Duchess of Bedford, you will learn about the rich social history of how this meal came about, along with how to enjoy each element of this fabulous indulgence.
The menu offers guests a selection of 16 loose leaf teas, finger cut sandwiches with traditional fillings, a selection of tea cakes and pastries as well as warm baked scones with strawberry preserve and rich Devonshire clotted cream*.
