Champagne Afternoon Tea for Two at the Park Lane Hotel
Food Drink

Description

This wonderful afternoon tea treat is the perfect way to celebrate a quintessential British past-time.

Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell - the seventh Duchess of Bedford - asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea with light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining. These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, without losing a crumb of its wonderful charm.

The Palm Court at Sheraton in Park Lane, London, is Mayfair’s premium meeting place. Perfectly located in the heart of the city and offering a glimpse into the magic and history of the roaring 20’s with stunning Art Deco features setting the scene.

On arrival you will be greeted by a member of staff who will seat you in the beautiful Palm Court Restaurant. You will be served a glass of Mὂet & Chandon Champagne, a selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, delicious scones with thick clotted cream and yummy seasonal preserves, a selection of fine French pastries and a choice of exquisite teas sourced from around the globe.
