From £59 .00 Per Person


Indulge in an Afternoon Tea with a twist at Great Scotland Yard, a 5-star hotel where tradition and history meets modern luxury. The former home of the Metropolitan Police, this historical institution now fuses classic glamour with bold art. Every thoughtful detail of its interior design tells the story of its prominent past.

In collaboration with Floris London, The Parlour at Great Scotland Yard Hotel will launch its new summer Afternoon Tea bringing the Amalfi Coast to London this summer.

The Afternoon Tea is inspired by Floris London's “Bergamotto di Positano” fragrance, a refreshing blend of bergamot entwined with mandarin and balmy marine notes, orange blossom, vanilla and amber which encapsulates the signature aromas of the Amalfi Coast. 

This Afternoon Tea collaboration promises to give guests ‘The faint sensation of forgotten summer hideaways that enflame hazy memories.’ The top notes of the fragrance have been skilfully interpreted into the menu with the introduction of typical ingredients of the coast and a re-interpretation of signature popular dishes of the Amalfitan culinary tradition, adapted to the setting of an afternoon tea. From Frittata di zucchine, particularly popular along the Amalfi Coast during summer, to Stracciatella, smoked salmon and caviar bruschetta which bring to the table the marine essence, the menu architecture has been carefully designed ensuring each dish has a story about Positano and the Amalfi Coast.

Warm scones are also served with Cornish Clotted Cream and Orange Jam, with a selection of sweet treats also available. These include the Almond & Cocoa Torta Caprese, Capri’s iconic cake, and Amalfi Lemon Delight “Delizia al Limone”, a priceless heritage that contains all the perfume and aroma of the “yellow gold” for excellence, the Limone Costa d’Amalfi I.G.P. (Protected Geographical Indication). In addition, the traditional babà with orange blossom, a traditional essence that pervades the houses of nonna along the coast during Spring will give guests a real taste of the coast.

The Afternoon Tea offers three irresistible options: For £59, savour the Standard Afternoon Tea, a delightful selection of savoury bites and sweet treats crafted to perfection. Alternatively, upgrade to the Pomello Spritz Afternoon Tea for £69 and enjoy the drink of the season – a refreshing Pomello Spritz cocktail, a grapefruit and elderflower aperitif, alongside your savoury and sweet treats.

Choose between Traditional Afternoon Tea, Champagne Afternoon Tea, or Bottomless Champagne Afternoon Tea with free-flowing Veuve Clicquot for 1.5 hours.

The hotel also welcomes furry friends for their Dog Afternoon Tea, which is available every Sunday. Further information about their Dog Afternoon Tea can be found here.

This iconic venue is steeped in history and would make the perfect pit stop from a day of sightseeing whilst continuing to absorb London's rich past. Located a stone's throw away from Covent Garden and one minute from Trafalgar Square, Great Scotland Yard Hotel connects Whitehall and Northumberland Avenue.
