Staying at home all the time can become very tiresome after a while. You need to change the scenery every once in a while, and that does not require changing your habits. If you are used to having a nice cup of afternoon tea every day after a bit of house cleaning, then so be it. But instead of staying at home for that tea, why not visit one of many places which London can offer? You have such a variety of choices of places to spend an afternoon in, that it seems like a waste to just stay shut. Here is a list of some of those places.
1. Brown’s Hotel
If you want to feel like you are in a domestic environment, yet not in your own home, then you should definitely visit Brown’s Hotel. You will rarely see such a sophisticated place that embodies everything that Londoners represent – high class, stiff upper lip, and a cult following of the British tradition of the afternoon tea. Sit back and relax in the comfortable armchairs and sip the delicious tea made by the best tea brewers, while you are listening to soft piano music in the background that will never interfere with your thought process.
2. The Ritz
You know the Ritz. Of course you do, everybody does. What everybody refuses to believe is that you should try its luxury at least once in your lifetime. With the first step inside you can be shamed of the quality of your carpet cleaning as you step in one of the cleanest rooms you have been in. You can have your afternoon tea in the comfort or a magnificent environment, tended to by friendly waiters, surrounded by London’s highlife and glamour.
3. The Landmark London
