The Tara Tea LoungeScarsdale Place Kensington, London, W8 5SR

Enjoy a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea in the tranquil surroundings of The Tara Tea Lounge, situated just seconds away from London's sought-after Kensington High Street, in the 4-star Copthorne Tara Hotel.

Guests will be welcomed into the warm and characterful tea lounge with the option of outdoor seating on a relaxing sundeck in the warmer months. Sit back and appreciate the traditional surroundings and friendly service, making for a truly special afternoon outing.

Delight in a classic selection of freshly made finger sandwiches such as honey roast ham and cheese; and smoked salmon with chive cream. Traditional scones are served with preserves and clotted cream, followed by tempting sweet treats including a delightful dessert of mango vanilla cream with berry coulis and a variety of miniature pastries and cakes. This traditional offering is of course accompanied by a menu of specially-selected teas.

Ideally located a short distance away from Kensington Palace, The Tara Tea Lounge is the perfect destination to take a break from a busy day of sight seeing in this fashionable borough of London. Very well connected to the rest of the city, High Street Kensington tube station is a short 2 minute walk away.
