Afternoon Tea - Westminster Abbey
Although we were served a light breakfast snack in-flight, after touring Westminster Abbey, we stopped at the Cellarium which houses the café, terrace, and shop in the Abbey. Recently opened in 2012, and located in a part of the Abbey that was constructed in the 14th century, the term Cellarium originates from the Latin word cella, or pantry. The pantry was a storehouse found in a medieval monastery or castle, which is of course the perfect spot for a café. The boys were happy to see that they served breakfast in addition to Afternoon Tea. One half of the table had bacon, eggs and toast, while the other half ordered the afternoon tea.
Refreshed with tea and treats, we were ready to head across the River Thames for the London Eye rotation. After that, we settled in to our hotel, took a quick nap, and then hailed a Black Cab for our Evening Tea reservations at The Berkeley.
