A great traditional tea in the heart of the city. Solo dining wasn’t uncomfortable, nor was I the only solo person there. The staff are incredible—very attentive and thoughtful (my cup was never near empty), also more than happy to chat if you like (or...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
