London and afternoon tea are two of my favourite things, but for some reason, I had never got around to trying afternoon tea in London. My Dutch friend had always expressed an interest in having afternoon tea in England, so with this in mind, I planned a trip.
There was quite a bit of competition but the rose garden decor of the Rose Garden afternoon tea in Palm Court at Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel in Bloomsbury enticed me. It also came recommended by colleagues.
The whole thing was gorgeous. Everything was beautifully laid-out, with vibrant rose decor. Also, it lived up to it’s name with vividly- coloured cakes in rosy hues.
Alongside finger sandwiches and homemade scones, we tucked into sweet treats such as a French choux crafted into the shape of a delicate flower and a bright red rose gateau that we paired with a glass of Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose.
It felt very luxurious. The portions could have done with being bigger, but they were lovely nonetheless.
If you’re looking for a good place to enjoy afternoon tea in London, then you could do far worse than the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel.
