Great Britain is famous for its English heritage and the afternoon tea is one tradition that has stood the test of time as one of our countries best loved pastimes. To experience the very finest in afternoons tea’s a trip to London is in order, and The Montcalm Hotel will certainly not disappoint.
This five star hotel boasts a prestigious central London location, on the distinguished Park Lane, and has decadent dining available to the discerning guest. The hotel prides itself on providing unparalleled customer service and excellence in hospitality as guests dine in the elegant chic atmosphere.
The Afternoon Tea was first created by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th Century after she requested a meal to bridge the gap between lunch and a late evening dinner. The word soon spread and the Afternoon Tea became a fashionable trend in society and remains as popular as ever today. This indulgent treat consists of delicate sandwiches, freshly baked scones and pastries and homemade preserves and clotted cream, accompanied by the finest English tea.
The Montcalm has put its own spin on this afternoon treat by adding a glass of Jacquart Champagne for the extra luxurious touch, and even provides a family friendly afternoon tea for children called “Teddy’s Tea Time” where little ones can enjoy chocolate dipped fresh fruits alongside the traditional sandwiches and pastries.
If you are looking to enjoy a trip to the city whether it is for business or pleasure, the afternoon tea is the perfect treat to fit into your busy schedule. Girls on a retail therapy trip can head to this grand hotel to be treated like a VIP and spoilt rotten by the attentive staff on hand to make your visit to the hotel one to remember, and gentlemen looking to sweep their lady off her feet on a romantic weekend away will certainly make a lasting impression by booking a champagne afternoon tea for their loved one.
