Afternoon Tea Anyone?

If you know me, you will know how much I love spending time in London. Whenever I visit I always like to try and make a memory and do something different from my usual Oxford Street stroll.

Myself and my friend Lucy decided to book in for afternoon tea as it's something I've never done before. 
After many whatsapp messages back and forth, we decided to book in at the Radisson Blu in Leicester Square. We booked with Virgin Experience which has lots of options for afternoon tea in London and across the UK and it gave us a little bit of a discount (thank you Lucy).

We arrived to the hotel restaurant, which was pretty busy, clearly a popular choice for many We were seated in the corner next to a window - perfect for people watching (don't judge me, we all do it).
The staff were so lovely and welcoming. The menu was a nice mix of savoury and sweet, the staff also allowed us to remove a sandwich both myself and Lucy didn't like. Nice, eh?

We didn't have to wait long before the tray arrived. Three tiers of goodness, I couldn't wait to tuck it. The tray came with two of each option apart from the scones which were four, two for me and two for Lucy so there was plenty to go around.
They also had a big selection of teas as you get a pot per person (I was for English breakfast and Lucy had peppermint). The sandwiches were lovely and the sweet treats were even better. They had chocolate eclairs with a chocolate filling! Result!

We had a lovely afternoon just chatting, taking photos, people watching and stuffing our faces. We weren't made to feel rushed at all and everyone was lovely.
If you're looking for something different to do in London, I would highly recommend going for afternoon tea and if you're in the area, the Radisson is pretty good. It was well priced (£47 without discount) and a great way to spend a winters afternoon.

Have you had afternoon tea in London?
Where would you recommend?
