£32 for a afternoon tea for two at The Royal Academy - Piccadilly

You haven't had afternoon tea, until you've experience it in the impressive setting of the imposing Burlington House, home to the Royal Academy of Arts in the heart of Piccadilly.
Art, architecture and fine dining combine for this Royal Academy afternoon tea! Renowned restaurateurs Peyton and Byrne run both the Keeper's House and the RA Grand Cafe inside those dark grey bricked walls of the Royal Academy of Arts in central London, making for a very creative and inspiring place for tea.
You have the choice between two Peyton and Byrne establishments for your afternoon tea extravaganza. The latest addition to the Royal Academy is the Keeper's House, which opened for the first time to the public in late 2014 following an extensive refurbishment. As an alternative to the Keeper's House, you can sip your tea and munch on your medley of cakes in the Grand Cafe in main wing of the Academy. As you pull up a red velvet chair, sit back and enjoy the amazing artefacts you're surrounded by in this rather unique basement cafe, whilst your afternoon tea is being freshly prepared.
Whether you choose the Keeper's House or the Grand Cafe for your Royal Academy afternoon tea, you will love the atmosphere and ambience of both eateries housed in this great building. Both menus offer a classic high tea experience with that contemporary Peyton and Byrne twist. Tea lovers will be especially spoilt, with a range of over 40 different teas and infusions.
