You’ve heard of a high tea? Well, today a number of eye catching, very literal, high teas took place around the capital as part of the “Only In London” initiative by Visit London.
In order to high light the British love affair with a cuppa, tea was taken in some extraordinary places such as on top of the IPC Building, on the Camden Roundhouse, on Westminster Abbey, and in the City of London, on top of the Monument.
The picture below shows the Monument caretaker enjoying a brew whilst taking in the best views on London.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said, ‘There’s nothing like the great British cuppa and the tradition of taking afternoon tea – especially high tea – has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. If you want somewhere to relax after a busy day sightseeing or shopping, or a wonderful place to go for a family treat, only in London will you get the most memorable experience of the national brew.”
