It's highly unlikely that you had high tea in London. What you had was probably afternoon tea.

marking - looks like a nice report with good pix! I love Hampton Coourt and feel it is one of the most unheralded places in the greater London area. Much much more enjoyable than the mob scene at the Tower of London IME and Windsor Castle!

Yes, years ago a visit to Hampton Court which is a good destination out of London. Did you see the gardens?

MissPrism, you are right--my mistake after writing a long trip report after a 12 hour stressful workday...oops. It was afternoon tea.

Ozarksbill, we did see the gardens but only briefly. It was a little chilly and the gardens were just starting to bloom.

PalenQ, thanks! I agree completely!

This is a typical Scottish high tea menu. http://mobile.dudamobile.com/site/th...menu.html#2752
I think I'd need a block and tackle to get me up from the table

MissPrism, fact-check me on this one but hopefully I was more accurate... Below is my trip report for our afternoon tea and theatre experience...
