Seriously convenient and seriously popular it’s worth getting your booking for a spa break with afternoon tea in quickly at the St.Pancras.

Tea, a treatment and tranquillity with great shopping up the road at the Westfield Centre and London to explore – that’s yours for the booking at Spa Mika at the Dorsett in Shepherds Bush.

There are dual treatment rooms and one with a private hot tub; the treatments are by exclusive brands such as Cinq Mondes. Afternoon tea is served in a rose filled retreat where a harp is gently played. Naturally, French patisserie forms a part of it and a nice touch for children – there own tailor made tea served in an artist’s paint box with a colouring kit.
As befits a hotel that was formerly a music studio where legends like The Kinks and David Bowie played, the K West offers something with a bit of edge. The spa has London’s first snow experience for instance, a cabin reminiscent of a snow drift which forms part of its heat and ice experience and a Glam Rock afternoon tea is served with just a bit more rock and roll than usual! Yet one of the things people notice about the hotel is that it is uncannily quiet despite being just five minutes from Shepherd’s Bush tube station. It is ultra fashionable and a favoured spot for the world of celebrity.

Well this is a new one – Japanese afternoon tea at the Silk Asian Restaurant at the Courthouse, it ‘s pretty healthy too with rice cakes with Aduki bean filling, cucumber Maki roll and green tea mousse amongst the selection, although a traditional afternoon tea is also on offer at the Carnaby.
