Taj, 51 Buckingham Gate, London
We visited this fabulous Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea in London recently and the kids absolutely loved it! The whole experience was a delight from start to finish. The table was beautifully decorated for our arrival and then dish after dish was brought out, all impeccably displayed and beautifully crafted.

Mary Poppins Afternoon Tea for Kids
Aqua Shard, London
Take a trip down memory lane with an exciting new afternoon tea inspired by the much loved work of P.L. Travers.
Available until Sunday 3rd November 2019, at aqua shard on level 31, guests will be taken on a playful journey down memory lane, with an exciting series of nostalgic and creative sweets and savouries that pay homage to Travers’ books.
Guests will be immediately immersed in Travers’ imaginary world, as they are presented with a menu that takes form as a gilt gold framed mirror – a recurring symbol throughout the books depicting Mary’s vanity and her ‘practically perfect’ reflection.
Served on a custom-made tea stand with an umbrella on top and silver booted feet below – with crockery that comes to life with Mary Shepard’s original illustrations of Mary Poppins – the tea will follow the format of a quintessentially British afternoon tea with unconventional twists.
To start, the savoury selection will include traditional finger sandwiches (Cackleberry farm egg and truffle, Dingley Dell honey roast ham and mustard, Ploughman’s and a Devon crab and cucumber brioche), as well as crumpets – Mary Poppins’ favourite – with miniature versions served warm with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

The tea will be served on bespoke chinaware also inspired by the story and available to buy from Savoy Tea.
