Taking tea with a fashionable twist
The practice of taking afternoon tea is a British tradition dating back centuries, but that doesn’t mean it can’t reinvent itself. The Berkeley hotel has been catering for Londoners and visitors with a taste for the finer things in life for over 100 years. It’s in the heart of Knightsbridge, close to Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the designer shops of Sloane Street, so it’s fitting that its afternoon tea has a fashion twist. The ‘Prêt-à-Portea’ changes every six months to keep up with the latest season, so you can eat cakes and fancies modelled on the Burberry’s classic trench, a Moschino handbag or Manolo Blahniks.
