Afternoon Tea at The Capital

The Capital is perfectly located in the heart of London's stylish Knightsbridge on Basil Street. Have a break during your day of shopping at Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Sloane Street, or after visiting the South Kensington museums and Hyde Park, or before heading to the West End theatres for a show. This Knightsbridge favourite has received the Tea Guild's Award of Excellence for Top London Afternoon Tea 2012. Judged by a team of undercover inspectors, these prestigious awards are bequeathed only on those establishments that show the greatest commitment to tea service. Afternoon tea is served daily in The Capital's modern and chic sitting room between 14:30 and 17:30. Along with a choice of teas, infusions of fresh coffee, you will sample a selection of sandwiches, fresh pastries, homemade jams and scones.
