Tale as Old as Time Afternoon Tea



Tale as old as time, true as it can be! Yes, a Beauty and the Beast afternoon tea actually exists and I am living for it. A while back my bestie and I traveled to London and I am just now getting to writing a bunch on content on what we did and saw while we were there! As you may know I studied abroad in London so London holds a really special place in my heart. It is my favorite city in the world and I never get tired of it, and always miss it. 

One of the magical things we did while in London in October was attend an afternoon tea at the Kensington House in South Kensington. The hotel was super close to our hotel so it was the perfect location. While I was studying abroad I actually walked past the hotel and thought it looked so gorgeous, but never went inside. Let me say it did not disappoint!


The lobby feels super intimate and they have a little cafe with big cozy chairs. For afternoon tea we headed to the back of the lobby to the greeter. We waited for a few minutes in the little cafe area then were shown our table. 



The tea included so much food and of course tea. If you aren't a tea person you could swap tea for a hot chocolate or even a fountain drink. But, the food was delicious! It was a mixture of traditional afternoon tea bits like sandwiches along with some treats and pastries. 


The best part was everything was themed Beauty and the Beast! Complete with a Cogsworth clock little dessert and an enchanted rose like clear jelly. 




To say the tea was Instagram-worthy is an understatement. It was a Beauty and the Beast fan's dream! Just goes to show you don't have to be in Disney to find some Disney magic. 




I hope you enjoyed these snapshots from my afternoon tea! Sadly, the tea has been discontinued by the hotel. But, be on the lookout in case they every bring it back. If you ever find yourself in London I highly recommend doing an afternoon tea one day. You're bound to love it!
