Afternoon Tea opposite Kensington Palace

Select Date

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone, in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington.

In celebration of our treasured location opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens, and inspired by "The Crown", we are delighted to announce our award-winning Royal Afternoon Tea. Served in Cheneston's Restaurant, the Park Lounge, or the Conservatory, this exceptional experience is a true royal indulgence. Discover a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes, and macarons. Taste a vast collection of loose-leaf teas at your leisure in fine surroundings, or perhaps a glass of Lanson Champagne, holder of a Royal Warrant to the Court of England since 1900. 

We kindly request that you book online. This is the easiest and most efficient way to reserve your table and it displays our most up-to-date offers and availability, particularly during busy weekend afternoon tea sittings. We are also able to accommodate requests and make arrangements for special occasions through our online booking system.

Please note that we regrettably cannot cater to dietaries that require both gluten-free and dairy-free options.

We are thrilled to announce that our Afternoon Tea received an Award of Excellence at the prestigious Afternoon Tea Awards 2023.
