Why settle for afternoon tea in London when you can add a Bloomsbury walk to the experience?
The Montague on the Gardens, 15 Montague Street, Bloomsbury, London, England, has launched a series of historical afternoon tea walks. Participants will learn about some of the most significant landmarks in literary and Georgian Bloomsbury before tucking into a traditional tea back at the hotel.
Tea walks will take place on various Sunday afternoons through October 2014. The tours depart the hotel at 12:30 p.m. and last for approximately one hour. What will you see, Road Trips Foodies? The British Museum, The Cartoon Museum, Bloomsbury Square (one of London’s first squares), The Brunei Gallery (exhibiting art from Africa and Asia) and The Weiner Library, which houses archives on the Holocaust.
All tours are led by Aly Mir, a guide who has escorted more than 20,000 people on tours of London.
The tour concludes at the hotel, where afternoon tea is served in the hotel’s conservatory.
The Montague on the Gardens is located right next to the British Museum, and its surrounding area of Bloomsbury was the traditional haunt of some of London’s most influential authors including Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes and E.M. Forster.
Upcoming Sunday Afternoon Tea Walk dates are June 8, June 22, July 13, July 20, August 31, September 14, September 28 and October 12. The tour is $60 per person. Historical walks must be pre-booked.
