Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Hotel!

Hellooo Lovelies,



On Saturday it was my mother’s birthday and as a gift I took her to the Waldorf Hotel in London. We started the day shopping around and buying everything we saw before venturing over! I chose the Waldorf for afternoon tea because not only had everybody online said it was incredible I also was enticed by the idea that it has the same name as Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. I had booked the afternoon tea for 2pm so we arrived at 1:45 as you have to wait in a little queue with others arriving at that time. The room was full of subtle chatter and a harpist playing in the centre. The room its self was so beautiful with such intricate detail especially the sparkly chandeliers! 

We started off with Tea because it isn’t Afternoon tea without tea and so I just had English breakfast tea while my mum opted to go with coffee. The man bought some mini sand timers that my mother and I instantly thought we could only be there for a certain time until we realised it was how long to let your tea brew for!
Next came out a plate of sandwiches, Ham and Mustard (my favourite!), cheese and cucumber, egg and cress, tomato cheese and salmon. The Ham one definitely had to be my favourite closely followed by the gorgeous egg!

Then came the incredible of all incredible things… the cake tier! The plates consisted of scones, chocolate finger sponge, tiramisu, passion fruit cupcakes, macaroons and so many more! My favourite had to be the tiramisu because it was so creamy I loved it. My mother loved the chocolate finger sponge because it was freshly out the oven and still warm so the chocolate chunks were still melted which was a great touch! Overall the food was of a very high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed all of it.

If you are out in London then I would really recommend booking for afternoon tea here. Throughout the meal there was also a harpist playing which really added to the atmosphere. Staff at the Waldorf were all so welcoming and even bought out a slice of cheesecake for my mum and we all sang because it was her birthday!



I hope you have enjoyed this post and are having a lovely week!
