The Parlour at Great Scotland Yard Hotel3-5 Great Scotland Yard, London , SW1A 2HN

Indulge in an Afternoon Tea with a twist at Great Scotland Yard, a recently opened 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.

Afternoon Tea is served in The Parlour which draws on tales of Britain's Victorian explorers. Earthy tones and luscious palm plants are offset by intricately patterned, fine fabrics and bold tiled flooring. Their Afternoon Tea offering pays suitable respect to the great British ritual with the added flair of spice. Savoury delights include a Bombay crab tart with tangy lime pickle and 'Coronation' Pate en croute with Major Grey's mango chutney. Scones are served warm from their in-house bakery and accompanied with clotted cream and homemade preserves. Finish off with a selection of tantalising sweets such as a yoghurt and rhubarb mousse.

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, Great Scotland Yard Hotel connects Whitehall and Northumberland Avenue.
