Portrait Restaurant - Trafalgar SquareNational Portrait Gallery, St Martins Place, London, WC2H 0HE

Planning a busy day shopping in the West End? Why not treat yourself afterwards to Afternoon Tea served at Portrait Restaurant in the National Portrait Gallery.

Just a stone's throw from Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square, this relaxed yet elegant restaurant has one of the most enviable views in London. Here you can enjoy Afternoon Tea while looking out on Nelson in Trafalgar Square and across Whitehall to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.

The latest Afternoon tea is inspired by the Gainsborough Family portraits and features prime Sussex ingredients in honour of the artist's birthplace. Tuck into delicious savoury items such as a Suffolk Coronation chicken on bridge roll that can be enjoyed before indulging in delightful sweet fancies such as a quince and sherry trifle.

A wide selection of teas is offered from dynamic young London-based importer and blender My Cup of Tea Fancy a tipple? There's always a choice of seasonal bellinis and sparkling wines too. Visiting London from abroad? The Three Graces English fizz from Chapel Down in Kent is not to be missed.
