What to do on a grim day in Knightsbridge? The answer is quite frankly "go and sample some excellent high tea at London's finest hotel, The Lanesborough". I arrived at the hotel and was immediately valeted and greeted by a cheerful doorman; finally an uplifting hope to this rainy day! In the marbled lobby i was again warmly greeted and my coat was taken. Then i sat down in the lounge and experienced some of the finest tea and sandwiches of England. Special mention to my waiter; Roman. He was very attentive and kind, suggesting when's/why's/what's and how's of tea. With a soft piano playing in the background, i was content as can be with my little cup of tea(the rhyme was semi-intentional!).
In other words, my visit was blissful and i am certain to return.
