London 2012 place to be: Afternoon tea at Orange Pekoe
LONDON, July 31 — Throughout the 2012 Olympic Games, Time Out, in partnership with Relaxnews, provides a tip of the day for visitors to London: It's the epitome of Britishness — sipping tea from delicate china, nibbling on crustless finger sandwiches and noshing on some pretty patisserie.
Recent years have seen an explosion of afternoon teas around the capital, but some are better than others. Having tried most of London's better-known afternoon tea places for this feature, we've found some of them to be cynically overpriced tourist traps — but others have been utterly refreshing delights, like the Orange Pekoe tearoom.
