Traditional afternoon tea in pleasant surroundings

Nice to relax with afternoon tea after a museum visit. It was impossible for us to eat all the food. We liked the sandwiches the best. They were very tasty. We got good scones, maybe a little dry just. When we got to the mighty cake pieces we were quite satisfied. Recommended!

Culinary recommendable!

The imposing building in the heart of London is easy to find. In any case, you should allow 30 to 40 minutes for queuing for bag control if you want to enter the museum. Through inquiries we were able to find the restaurant at the top of the building well. The food was delicious and of excellent quality. Unfortunately, we had the impression that we were not really welcome, as the restaurant is already more expensive and accordingly a certain public is there. The atmosphere was a bit hectic and not so cozy in English. That's why there are only 4 out of 5 stars. The museum itself is absolutely worth seeing!
