Afternoon Tea: The Tower Hotel - Tower Bridge, London


Hello beautiful people - we are back! As you should know, we have taken a couple of weeks off from blogging as we needed some time to recover and allow you lovely readers to catch up with our posts from our travels. If you are new to our blog, or have been gone completely missing from the face of the Earth (or maybe just our Twitter feed), you can catch up here.




If you also didn't know, it was Afternoon Tea Week last week, and of course we had to commemorate it with having Afternoon Tea last Thursday! We found this delightful deal on Groupon for £24.95 for two in Tower Bridge and we're excited to finally share it with you!


With amazing views of the Thames and Tower Bridge, we chose from a wide selection of teas to accompany our tower of food (literally!) We both went for the mango peach tea which went down perfectly with four different types of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, and the top deck of cakes, macaroons and panacotta.

No words can replicate the taste of the amazing food that we had - everything was perfect and we couldn't think of a better way to spend a sunny Thursday afternoon. We shall let the photos do the talking for us.

  9. You know, I went for afternoon tea 2 weeks ago at the Hilton park lane and it was sooooo good, I've been desperate to go again ever since! I absolutely love Tower Hill area, my dad works right next to the Tower of London, so I might try rope him into taking us all here soon because it looks so good! Thanks for sharing!

  17. I really need to go to this hotel and have this afternoon tea, enough said. Afternoon tea is one of my fave things in the world. Can I get a job as an afternoon tea tester do you think?! I really want to go inside the bridge as well.

  20. I haven't had an afternoon tea in way way too long! The Groupon deal for this place sounds excellent indeed, especially at London prices, and at such an iconic venue! The sandwiches look very tempting, and same goes for those homemade scones - yummy! I have a question that's been bugging me for ages though, is it macaroons or macarons? I feel like I can't consider myself a true afternoon tea connoisseur until I know the answer - perhaps you guys can help hehe!

    1. That's exactly what we thought about the price, such a steal! Omg don't even get me started with that - I've googled it many times and both ways of writing it comes up - my only theory is ones the French way and ones the English way?? Hahaha goodness!
