WH Smith : le salon de thé british le plus secret de Paris

Halfway between Poudlard and Winterfell, Harry Potter and Jon Snow could land here from one   minute to the next.?

Hidden on the upper level of the famous WH Smith Anglo-Saxon bookshop, the new Twinings tea room features an ultra discrete access. Follow the guide. Go through the aisles, up the wooden stairs and walk to the end of the corridor. You have arrived.

Stained-glass windows, wood panelling, crests from another ear: the ideal setting for an authentic English tea time under the regal gaze of the Queen’s portrait. Normal, the illustrious tea house supplies the English crown since Victoria. In total, 28 tea selection: London Strand Earl Grey (7€) (7€) Oolong from China (9€). With a slew of British cakes : cheesecake (9€), Eton mess (mix of meringue and vanilla ice cream, 7,50€), brownie (9€), pudding (9€) and scones of course (8€).

The plus: you can leaf as much as you want through the books and magazines.
