The Bloomsbury Tea Set

For shoppers at Soho or Covent Garden’s stylish boutiques, and visitors to the British Museum, the best option for an elegant Afternoon Tea is at The Bloomsbury Hotel. It’s located in an area that dates from the 18th century, and was constructed over a series of grand urban squares. The University of London and the British Museum presides over the area, which also plays host to numerous publishing houses. SEEN loves this part of London, which is most like the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge in its leafy ambience, retaining the rather charming sense of an ivory tower in the middle of the city.

Diners are surrounded by the hotel’s iconic 1930s architecture, as The Bloomsbury Afternoon Tea is served daily from 12 noon until 6 pm in their Dalloway lounge, or al fresco style on the popular new Dalloway Terrace – central London’s most talked about new outdoor space. Named after the eponymous character created by Virginia Woolf, an author whose name will forever be associated with Bloomsbury, Dalloway Terrace is an elegant, poetic and quintessentially English space, just like their Afternoon Tea. With its fully retractable roof and lower terrace lined with rich buxus hedging, it’s a private and rare outdoor sanctuary in the heart of the bustling city.

The ‘Bloomsbury Set’ Afternoon Tea is inspired by original recipes from the 1920s & 1930s.

Upgrade your tea with a glass of English Sparkling Wine from the award-winning Ridgeview winery, which was served at the Queen’s 80th Birthday and Diamond Jubilee, or a glass of French Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne.ff
