Aqua ShardLevel 31, The Shard, 31 St. Thomas Street, London, SE1 9RY

Aqua Shard, located on Level 31 of The Shard, offers a contemporary British Afternoon Tea with breath-taking views of the London skyline.

The contemporary cosmopolitan interior has distinctly British touches; gin and tea, both with strong roots in South London, have inspired the design along with Liberty fabrics which appear in subtle touches throughout the restaurant, complementing the dark oak floor.

The Classic Afternoon Tea begins with a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked vanilla, raisin and orange blossom scones which are served with Jersey clotted cream and home-made fragrant homemade jams.

This selection of seasonally changing jams and jellies combines some exciting flavour combinations, all of which lift the traditional favourite British jam flavours with new herb or essence popular in British cuisine. These include strawberry and Tahitian vanilla; apple, lime and earl grey jelly & raspberry and raspberry & lemon thyme.

To finish, homemade cakes and sweet treats combine both traditional and innovative British delights.
