The five-star InterContinental London Park Lane is situated between Mayfair and Knightsbridge overlooking the Royal Parks and iconic London landmarks. Set on the ground floor is the visually stunning Wellington Lounge, with a view of London’s Wellington Arch promised from every seat.

As soon as you enter the hotel, you are welcomed with fresh flowers. Wellington Lounge is also the place to indulge in a new Afternoon Tea menu that cleverly evolves with the seasons and always brings to Park Lane the best products within the British Isles.

Having heard their famous afternoon tea, I decided to give it a go <3. Below is the menu I tried and loved. Even though it was difficult to choose my favourite ones were “The Queen’s Hat” and “Hen egg and cress, carrot bread”. Can’t wait to go back!
