The 6 Best children’s afternoon teas in London
Entertaining Kids afternoon teas
Tea time sandwiches and cakes have never sounded so much fun. Take a trip on a bus and eat cake, try your hand at spell making, or join Peter Rabbit. This is afternoon tea with a smile, guaranteed to entertain even the hardest to please kids. Take a look at the top six kids' afternoon teas and make your choice – but you do need to book in advance. Not surprisingly they are very, very popular! Treat your kids to a special outing while a resident at any of the holiday apartments in London.
Fancy being a wizard? Then head for Soho bakery Cutter & Squidge’s underground Potion Room. Wrap your cloak around you and sit at a school desk. Wait patiently for the Potions Master to arrive, ready to take you on a journey mixing potions and creepy concoctions to eat. There are Knickerbocker bites, bickies (a biscuit/cake and cookie all rolled into one), and Yorkshire Puddings containing unexpected fillings. Drink pumpkin juice from a mini-cauldron or unicorn tear tea.
Or would you like to join The Tiger Who Came to Tea at the Savoy? The elegant surroundings of the Savoy are perfect for such a tea served on Tiger themed crockery. Whimsical tea-time treats including tiger-striped scones and suitably decorated pastries.
Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit is perennially popular so a trip to Le Meridien, Piccadilly will definitely provide an enchanting experience. Peter Rabbit’s adventures come to life through food such as Mr. McGregor’s Garden inside a mini-baguette or Caught in a Twist tomato pinwheel.
Planning a visit to see Charlie & the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal? Stop off beforehand at One Aldwych for a special Charlie & the Chocolate Factory inspired tea. Try some Snozberry jam, lemon sherbert tea, Loompaland lemon floss, meal-in-marshmallows or cheddar scones with bacon flavoured jam.
Equally perfect for children with a sweet tooth is the Chesterfield Mayfair’s The Original Sweet Shop Afternoon Tea. Highlights include a Coca-Cola slice, fizzy apple mousse, chocolate chip scones and a visit from the Candyman offering the opportunity to fill a bag with retro style penny sweets.
Climb aboard the Bakery Bus for a bus tour with a difference. How many landmarks can you spot as you tour the streets while eating delightful sandwiches, cupcakes, macarons, and scones made fresh each day at Brigit's Bakery in Covent Garden? If you are planning for a trip to London with kids and family, make sure to book your stay at any of the serviced apartments in central London.
