Yesterday, we celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary and we went to London to Claridges for a Champagne Afternoon Tea which our son and daughter-in-law gave us last year and which we’ve only just managed to get a booking. It appears that December was fully booked by September.
We had a lovely tea and came away feeling very full. The staff were very attentive without being overpowering and nothing was too much trouble. The service was excellent.
Claridges have 46 different teas you can choose from and for my first I tried a tea grown in Cornwall and, I have to say, it was delicious. All in all I had three different teas and Ann two. We loved the art deco of the hotel and the really friendly atmosphere.
The staff discovered it was our wedding anniversary and brought us some special cakes!!!.
We had a lovely time and really enjoyed ourselves. Claridges has a reputation for being one of the best hotels in the world. It thoroughly deserves that and its five stars.
