Experience one of London's most historic landmarks paired with a scrumptious treat with this visit to the Tower of London and sparkling afternoon tea for two at Brasserie Blanc - safe in the knowledge that you're free to go without punishment!
If you thought that Afternoon Tea was the preserve of the English, then the lovely French version of the treat served exclusively at Brasserie Blanc will certainly make you think twice. Choose between two fantastic venues for this traditional treat served with a French twist - Charlotte Street, in the bustling West End, or Tower Bridge near the City.
Choose your specialty tea or infusion from the renowned Tea Pigs range or coffee if that's preferred, and tuck into a generous supply of freshly cut finger sandwiches made with delicious savoury fillings, scones served with homemade jam and Devonshire clotted cream, and the famous lemon drizzle cake, made to Maman Blanc's original recipe. The French influences continue as you both enjoy a glass of chilled sparkling wine - perfect for toasting the continuing harmony of Anglo-French relations - and for some added 'ooh la la' you'll find the serving of hand-made chocolate truffles are a wonderful finish to this decadent afternoon feast.
