Taking high tea at a London hotel is one of the city’s classic experiences, and one that leaves you with plenty of options to choose from.

Just in case you were torn between high tea and doing drinks, Le Méridien Piccadilly has you covered by introducing a new twist on the concept: Gin & Tonic Afternoon Tea.

Served at the Terrace Bar & Grill, and at £32 ($50) a person, there are six fruit- or herb-infused gins to choose from, including Hendrick's with cucumber, Gin Mare with sweet basil stirred with rosemary, and Beefeater 24 with Japanese green tea. Your drink will be accompanied by a selection of finger sandwiches, warm homemade scones with jam and clotted cream, as well as a range of pastries. Should you want to skip the tea and head straight for drinks, or be inspired by the afternoon tea to keep on drinking, one of the largest selections of Gin in London is available at the bar.
