Whether you’re treating your mum on her birthday or celebrating your best friend’s big promotion, few activities feel as out-of-the-ordinary special as going for afternoon tea. But this very British tradition can also be eye-wateringly expensive – particularly in London, where afternoon tea in a top hotel can easily set you back upwards of £50 per head.
