London, it’s more than just its famous landmarks. OK, you’ve got to see them too, but this city is so dynamic that it can’t be fully understood without being properly explored. To truly understand London’s charm, experience it in these 7 ways.

Through Drinking High Tea

Honestly, what is a more British experience than enjoying some Earl Grey and a scone? If you want to get your fancy on, head to The Orangery in Hyde Park for the real deal. A tiered tower of finger sandwiches, clotted cream and a pot of sugar cubes will await you in the most regal of settings. If you want a more down to earth experience, have your high tea at Liberty department store with the other shoppers.
