Afternoon Tea in London

one of my favorites things in london was having afternoon tea at claridge's
when we stepped into claridge's we really felt like we stepped back in time. it was so elegant and glamourous and refined. it was very art deco and fancy, but also welcoming and warm.

for our afternoon tea, we had a choice of over 40 teas (we each tried two), finger sandwiches, pastries and scones with Marco Polo jelly and Cornish clotted cream. at 39GBP (~$65) per person it was not cheap, but it was definitely worth it!! (and you know we absolutely stuffed ourselves to get our "money's worth"!) :)
