Who doesn’t love afternoon tea?
With our annual staycation underway, our time mostly focussed on tidying and clearing our home in preparation for upcoming house works, me and D have kept ourselves on it by building in a few afternoon treats … possibly more treats than tidying but, hey, this is the only kind of ‘holiday’ we’re having this year.
Earlier this week, we took out a couple of hours for Prêt-à-Portea At The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge:
The Berkeley’s legendary designer afternoon tea, Prêt-à-Portea, is inspired by the themes and colours of the fashion world. The menu of mouth-watering delicacies with a fashionista twist is transformed every six months to follow the changing seasons in fashion.
Very nice it was. Not quite up to The Four Seasons in New York – my favourite afternoon tea location – who do the best scones in the entire world but a wonderfully pleasureable afternoon tea break … if I don’t mention the small matter of bumpers bumping in the unloading area which may make this the most expensive afternoon tea we’ve ever had to date.
On wheelchair access, I’m thrilled to report that included in the huge front entrance makeover, recently finished at The Berkeley, is a wheelchair accessible lift so do not let those front steps put you off any longer. Access is there, behind screens at the side, and sizeable enough for me, my hefty power wheelchair plus two companions.
So, there you have it: afternoon tea in an easily accessible London location.
Take the time out and give yourself a treat 💋
