    Bookstores or tea in London?

    Hi all! I'm making my first trip to London in a little less than a month. I am pretty well set for the 'touristy' stuff, but am wondering if anyone can recommend a good place to get afternoon tea and/or a nice bookstore where I can pass a few hours. Money isn't absolutely no object but since I'll oly be doing it once I'm willing to pay a fair amount for the tea.

    Thanks in advance!

    Spoilt for choice my friend. Depending on wherever you are planning to spend your day check out the internet or the nearest Tourist information office on your arrival. London has some of the largest and most comprehensive bookstores in the world. If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of markets then there are also many second hand book markets to browse, and maybe even pick up a rare first edition.
    With Tea still being the UK's favourite beverage somewhere locally will be an establishment where you can buy your cup of tea in a builders mug for a couple of pounds or in a bone china cup and saucer for five pounds upwards. Enjoy the experience.

    Well Waterstones Picadilly is the largest bookstore in Europe, IIRC. Eight floors of books!

    When my sister was in London for a semester she also wanted to do 'tea', and ended up going to the Ritz. Obviously it was expensive, but it's sort of a 'classic' tea location. I know I've read several old British books from the 50's where they go and take tea there. She said it was really nicely down and really elegant and sort of exactly what you imagine for 'tea in London'. So if you're okay with paying a bit extra, I'd definitely recommend it!
