Afternoon Tea in London just seems like such an iconic thing to do. Has anyone done this? Any locals have a recommendation? How expensive is it? Do they really serve tea & crumpets?

Earl Gray, and not just because Q from Skyfall fancies it. It's a tea that will go with just about anything, and is quite popular not just in London but all throughout Europe. It's hard to beat a gentle but full flavor like Earl Gray, and because of its popularity it's far from expensive. Dean Street Townhouse offers up some of the best afternoon tea around, whether you go with Earl Gray or anything else.

Harrod's of London celebrates the best of British at The Tea Room, featuring a quintessentially English line-up of mouth-watering fare, crumpets included :)
