Most traditions are pretty rigid and afternoon tea is no exception. But afternoon tea at Four Seasons at Ten Trinity Square is more like that fun aunt that accepts that traditions exist but lets you do what you want anyway. Here, rather than offering a single price that gets you everything, you can just pick the parts you want. You want some scones and tea but you’re not interested in little sandwiches? Easy, order the cream tea for a tenner. And it doesn’t hurt that the hotel has majestic pillars, a live singer, and is a five minute walk from the Tower of London.
