The Best Places for Afternoon Tea in Edinburgh

afternoon tea Bonham

That I enjoy a good Afternoon tea is no secret! Preferably with fresh and delicious food, balanced teas and a lovely location. Here’s my picks for the best places in Edinburgh for afternoon tea. You can find each individual review linked through the title and I’ll continuously add new ones as I experience them.


The Bonham Hotel

At The Bonham Hotel you’ll find a lovely atmosphere of a vintage decadence which makes for a perfect setting for Afternoon Tea. We went there for the Festive Afternoon Tea just before Christmas and the highlight really was the location and the atmosphere.
