I made a deal with Alex at the beginning of our trip, that I would do something soccer related if he went to tea with me. After he booked our tour of the Old Trafford Stadium (post coming soon) I jumped to book our afternoon tea at Harrods’ Georgian Restaurant. The dining room has been open since 1913 and the history can be felt through the carved wood, gold leaf and mosaic decor. We enjoyed the classic Georgian Afternoon Tea complete with a selection of finger sandwiches, warm scones served with clotted cream, strawberry jam and lemon curd, and a large selection of fresh tea pastries. The tea selection all sounded wonderful, but we enjoyed the Blend 1849, which was created to commemorate Harrods’ 150th anniversary. We left full on sandwiches, scones and pastries, we honestly could not even finish all the food. While Alex won’t admit it, I think he enjoyed tea (or at least the food) more than he expected. If you are looking for the traditional English tea experience, and a trip to Harrods, I highly recommend The Georgian! xoxo

Keep in mind that The Georgian has a strict dress code for their dining room that does not permit sneakers, shorts, athletic wear, flip flops or promotional clothing.
