Senate Room Royal Academy of Arts, 6 Burlington Gardens, London , W1S 3ET

Set within the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts, Senate Room serves an elegant Italian spin on the great British tradition of Afternoon Tea. 

Overlooking Burlington Gardens, the Senate Room has been restored by Sir David Chipperfield RA into a sophisicated space. Defined by its tranquil atmosphere and stunning high ceilings, the Senate Room is the perfect place to sip on tea and enjoy a fresh take on familiar Afternoon Tea favourites.

Afternoon Tea begins with a platter of Mediterranean savouries, including moreish focaccini and crostini. In keeping with tradition, the Sentate Room tea includes freshly made scones served with a taste of Italy in the form of Amalfi lemon curd and mascarpone cream. Sweet treats include a range of classically decadent Italian desserts such as cannoli and Florentine pastries.

Situated in one of London's most vibrant areas in Piccadilly near Burlington Arcade and the iconic Fortnum & Mason, this restaurant is just a 5 minutes' walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.
