Afternoon tea has been a popular activity for centuries. It was introduced by the Duchess of Bedford in the 1800’s. With modern tea rooms popping up everywhere, its hard not to be obsessed with this reoccurring trend. What’s not to like about socialising with friends, whilst sipping champagne, tea and nibbling on warm scones with jam and clotted cream. With the fancy décor and modern twist of furnishing, these tea rooms were made to be hits on Instagram.
One of the most instagrammable restaurants located in London, is ‘Sketch’. Known for being London’s finest and most artistic afternoon tea experience. Decorated in pink, floor to ceiling, this is every girly girls’ dream. Their tiny quirky details go a long way, providing every guest a memorable experience. From the writing in the tea cups to the artistic doodles in the frames, this tea room is far from dull. Before entering the gallery, you are greeted with a large crockery vending machine, where you can take away your very own souvenir. Prices start at £80 per person for the ‘Traditional Afternoon Tea’ or £94 for ‘Tea with Bubble’. You decide, will this be a once in a lifetime visit or a weekly occurrence?
