High Tea of Highgate. London, United Kingdom

A delightful tea room in Highgate Village that's popular with locals and tourists alike for its warm service, cream teas and delicious cakes.

Afternoon teas at luxury London hotels are booked up weeks if not months in advance, and are also expensive at around £40 a head. This is a charming and much cheaper alternative.

The cakes and scones are baked on the premises every morning by owner Georgina. Her lavender cake and lemon drizzle sponge cake are superb, as is the cream tea with light, fluffy scones, clotted cream and jam. I tried the London Afternoon Blend, but there are many special tea blends to choose from, and you can also buy boxes to take home.

The shop also offers a selection of pretty homeware products including English fine china by Burleigh (the cow creamer is a bestseller), aprons and tea towels.
