For the 28th time, the judges of the UK Tea Councils Tea Guild have nibbled and sipped their way through gallons of Earl Grey and piles of perfect sandwiches in their quest to find the best place to take afternoon tea in London. And the winner is... the Goring in Belgravia.
The hotel gained the top award for London tea destinations after receiving a near-perfect score. Afternoon tea can be taken by a roaring fire in the hotels lounge or, rarely for London, al fresco.
