49: Relish warm scones and delight in the view


There is no wonder why broke Londoners love cream teas: for a moderate price, your cup of tea comes with dainty scones topped with lashings of strawberry jam and sweet clotted cream. For someone who keeps a tight hold on the purse strings, this means a dish as fulfilling as a proper meal, often served in a posh place.

Tate modern’s 6th floor restaurant is a fine place for such a treat. Two warm sultana scones with jam and cream cost less than £5, while the rude staff is compensated by the gorgeous view on the Thames, the millennium bridge and Saint Paul’s standing on the opposite bank. In wintertime, one can enjoy a remarkable nighttime panorama, with city lights glowing in the dark.

  1. I love your blog! I’m so glad I found it; it’s given me so many ideas of places to visit. I totally agree with you about Borough Market – I went there on a Saturday and very much regretted it! While it’s amazing it was insanely busy.. I have just moved to London and started my own blog where I hope to write about my own experiences.. I’d love it if you could take a look!
