Afternoon Tea London - The The English Tea Room

BROWN’S HOTEL HAS A FASCINATING HISTORY AND HAS HOSTED MANY DISTINGUISHED GUESTS SINCE IT OPENED AS LONDON’S FIRST EVER HOTEL IN 1837. IT IS FROM HERE THAT RUDYARD KIPLING PENNED MANY OF HIS NOVELS AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE ENGLISH TEA ROOM WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR AGATHA CHRISTIE’S ‘AT BERTRAM’S HOTEL’. TO THIS DAY, THIS GLAMOROUS, FIVE-STAR ESTABLISHMENT WELCOMES GUESTS ‘IN-THE-KNOW’.
