Afternoon Tea at The Ivy Cafe | Credit: TheIvyCafeWimbledon.com


Quite possibly the most quintessentially British week in the calendar, this week is Afternoon Tea Week. Equally British is the unpredictable weather, so for what may be a drizzly weekend in Wimbledon we shall be tucking in to tea and cakes at a few of our favourite cafes, hotels and pubs.

Hotel du Vin at Cannizaro House, Wimbledon has just launched their new every day indulgence afternoon tea menu which is well worth a try. Their spectacular Orangery tops off this beautiful experience.

The Ivy Café, Wimbledon has teamed up with one of France’s most historic Champagne houses, Perrier-Jouët, to launch a sumptuous ‘Butterfly Kisses’ Champagne afternoon tea.
