Summer in London- Afternoon Tea at the Houses of Parliament

Houses of Parliament, Afternoon TeaTraveling to London this summer? Here’s a unique British experience you’ll want to write home about. The Houses of Parliament are offering Afternoon Tea as an add-on to Guided Tours. You can take tea in the historic Pugin Room in the House of Commons overlooking the River Thames.

The menu sounds delightful: citrus-marinated Scottish salmon with cream cheese; lemon curd and chive on a mini bagel; watercress and free-range egg mayonnaise on wholemeal bread; sultana scones with strawberry jam and Devonshire clotted cream; and Valronha chocolate delice—served with your choice of tea or coffee.

Available after select guided tours on Saturdays until August 24; and Thursdays and Fridays between August 1- 23, 2013. Seatings are 2 pm, 3:45 pm and 5:15 pm. The price is £16.50.
