Afternoon Tea in The Park Room and Library at Grosvenor House is the perfect setting for any afternoon tea.

Since 1929 we’ve infused a touch of glamour into our iconic hotel with England’s quintessential midday tradition as we serve ‘Anna’s Afternoon Tea’ from 12.30 pm until 6pm.

An exquisite selection of delicate sandwiches accompanied by decorative and delicious pastries, hand crafted by executive pastry chef Dale DeSimone and his talented team.

Accompanied by a selection of the finest Newby teas including our signature Yellow Rose Tea, and thoughtful piano music each day. Immerse yourself in the elegance of the Park Room with  unique views of Hyde Park.

The tea is named ‘Anna’s Afternoon Tea’ after Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who was said to have complained of “having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon. To overcome this, a light meal consisting of tea (usually Darjeeling) and cakes or sandwiches was served.

From this desire, the ritual of Afternoon Tea was born.
