The Kensington's Landmarks Afternoon Tea

The Kensington's Landmarks Afternoon Tea

Celebrating the best of London, Town House at The Kensington has launched a new Afternoon Tea that takes in inspiration from London’s most recognisable and historic landmarks.

Guests will be taken on a tasty foodie tour of some of the capital’s most famous architectural feats from the opulent surroundings of Town House restaurant.

The new Afternoon Tea is Instagram gold and will be presented on a London Eye-inspired tea stand, served alongside a beautiful bespoke map of London illustrated by Eleni Sofroniou, highlighting the landmarks featured in the tea, which guests can take home with them.

Starting with a skyline of scones and sandwiches, guests will also enjoy a selection of savoury treats including a cockney staple Steak & London Ale Pie and a Colston Bassett Stilton & Broccoli Quiche alongside a bite-size Crab Cake with Tartare Sauce & Caperberries.

Those with a sweet-tooth will delight with London Landmark creations including ‘The Gherkin’ crafted from White Chocolate with a Dark Chocolate Ganache, ‘The Shard’ made of Carrot Cake & Milk Chocolate, an iconic ‘London Telephone Box’ imagined in Rhubarb Mousse and a ‘Big Ben’ inspired Lemon Curd Tart.

Town House is the signature restaurant at The Kensington hotel and is spread across three classically designed drawing rooms, serving locally-sourced, seasonal modern British cuisine.

Nestled in the heart of one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods – complete with stylish décor, hand-picked furnishings and open fireplaces – Town House also provides intimate porticos overlooking South Kensington’s tree-lined avenues.
