Over 100 years old, the Claridges Hotel stands for everything traditionally “English,” so it’s no surprise that Tea Guild has given it an “Award of Excellence” four years in a row. In 1920, the hotel was given a makeover and it remains one of the best-preserved art deco architectural sites in the city. Located in the chic Mayfair district, it’s surrounded by designer shops that match the hotel rooms inside, which were designed by fashion guru Diane von Furstenberg. The name-dropping doesn’t end there, though; stop in for a bite at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant.
