Classic afternoon tea experience in a beautiful setting. Birthday present was received well! Endless supplies of cakes, sandwiches, scones and tea. Don't fill up on too much tea or like me you run out of room for much food! Expensive but totally worth it for the experience and would highly recommend. I can't wait to do it again!

I went to the Ritz yesterday for a birthday tea with my husband. It was disappointing from first to last. The furniture was tired with chair fabric in dire need of a clean, even the carpet to the toilets was badly stained. High tea is like a machine. The room was packed and everyone was served in one sitting on...

Spacious lounge and very comfortable. Nice welcome with excellent cocktails and nibbles. Service was smart and attentive. It was lovely to listen to the piano. We entered by the side entrance. Toilets are on the lower floor and are spacious and clean with an attendant.

My sister and I took our Mum for Afternoon Tea at the Ritz and what a beautiful experience we had. The service was wonderful and the tea was a delight. Strangely, the food was actually very simple but that's what sandwiches should be. The scones were light and fluffy and the cakes were very tasty indeed. The glass of champagne...

Me and my friend recently visited the ritz for afternoon tea. It was more like evening tea as it was only at 19:30. The ambiance in the evening is really nice and I would definitely recommend visiting at this time. Ah the cakes and sandwiches were very nice. We asked for more macaroons and they were more than happy to...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites. Possibly the most elegant and opulent private rooms in London, William Kent House offers the perfect venue for private receptions, weddings, boardroom meetings, lunches, dinners and gala events. The Ritz London is a Grade II star listed building and in 2002 became the first hotel to receive the Royal Warrant from his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for banqueting and catering services. ... more   less
