There's no better place to enjoy an Afternoon Tea than at Fortnum & Mason (...well, apart from The Ritz).

Fortnum's is the closest that a shop comes to being a 5-star hotel. It really is lovely inside (we think it's better than Harrods). They even hold a number of Royal warrants to supply Buckingham Palace with groceries -- that's how luxurious it is. So how about dressing up and having an Afternoon Tea in their world-renowned Tea Salon?

Here's a selection of the fillings they put inside their finger sandwiches (subject to change): Coronation Turkey, Smoked Salmon, Glazed Ham with English Mustard Mayonnaise, Hen's Egg Mayonnaise with English Cress, and Cucumber with Mint and Cream Cheese.

Or how about a fruit scone, served with Somerset Clotted Cream and a choice of preserves: Lemon Curd, Raspberry, Strawberry, or Wild Blueberry.

Then you'll have a choice of tea cakes and pastries served from the Cake Carriage.

Note: The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon has a dress code. Guests are asked to dress "smartly". Shorts, flip-flops, wellington boots, sportswear or beachwear are not permitted.

After you've finished your Afternoon Tea there are plenty of other things to do nearby. Piccadilly is home to the Royal Academy of Arts and Burlington Arcade -- and Piccadilly Circus is just a short walk down the road. If you time it right, then you may even be able to squeeze in the Changing the Guard ceremony beforehand.

If you really want to treat someone, then how about booking an afternoon tea inside the Palm Court at the Ritz Hotel instead? It costs a bit more than the one at Fortnums, but it's easily the best one in London. You can also book an Afternoon Tea at the House of Parliament, and combine it with a guided tour.
