Step inside Petersham Nurseries' decadent wonderland, an emporium of beauty, goods and a sumptuous Afternoon Tea in the heart of Covent Garden.
The Petersham's gorgeous interior is brimming with bouquets and floral patterns, plus spindly Italian chairs and a grand chandelier, cementing your experience as one of indulgence and decadence.
The menu relies on only the freshest produce so is often subject to change, though will always include a selection of milk buns - with fillings ranging from Spenwood cheese and apricot chutney, proscuitto di San Daniele and anchovy and butter - plus homebaked scones with clotted cream and jam.
Desserts include blackberry and vanilla mascarpone sponge, a pistachio, chocolate and orange cannoli and a lemon polenta cake, plus 'Bomboloni', an Italian donut with cream filling. Why not upgrade to a Petersham Bellini or 'Tea Tail' for just an extra £10 per person?
Petersham Nurseries is right in the thrum of The City, mere minutes away from the Leicester Square Tube Station.
Afternoon Tea is served 3pm to 4:30pm Thursday - Sunday
