Afternoon tea at Sketch is like having scones and clotted cream in on an Alice In Wonderland-themed spaceship. This massive space is made up of several rooms, each with somewhat different themes, and each slightly insane - in a good way. As for the eating and drinking, the cakes and finger sandwiches are nice, but you’re really here because there isn’t anywhere like it in the world. And make sure you go to the bathroom while you’re there. That’s the best room in the building.
