A High Tea to Remember…

Treating my two teenage children to their first High Tea in London, was an experience I wanted to share together. So when I discovered the “ Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” themed Afternoon High Tea at the Chesterfield Hotel in Mayfair, I booked the adventure immediately.




“Charlie and the Chesterfield Afternoon Tea” is open daily from 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Children have their own special menu consisting of sandwiches (ham, cheese and jam), fruit and choc chip scones, pastries and delights accompanied by a milkshake or tea.

For the big kids (adults) there was a savoury selection of delicious home made sandwiches (ham, chicken, salmon and egg) and freshly baked choc chip and fruit scones. The sweet selections of home made pastries and cupcakes included, a fruit tart, milk chocolate Wonka Bar, blueberry macaroon, bubble-gum éclair, orange cupcake, fizzy lifting cake and a white chocolate golden egg ! All are served with your choice of coffee, loose leaf or flowering teas or hot chocolate. The Chesterfield also offers vegetarian and gluten free options.



This playful take on Afternoon Tea, reflected by the much loved and ever popular Roald Dahl classic story of “ Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, was an afternoon tea with a twist indeed. A delectable array of treats extremely appealing to the eye and a food sensory awakening satisfies it’s patrons. I loved the whimsical idea of this themed High Tea, an experience highly recommended for all ages, and an amusing affair my children will remember forever. 🙂

  • Children’s menu is priced at £19.50 (under 12 years)
  • Adults menu is starts from £38.50 (per person)
The Charlie and the Chesterfield Afternoon Tea experience is valid until November 2017

  1. What an utterly brilliant idea! My still favourite cookery book was written by Tessa Dahl after her husband died and is called ‘Revolting Recipes’ a treasury of recipes inspired by the food in Dahl’s books. I must see if my daughter will join me for tea before the offer runs out if I am in London beforehand. It’s right up our street despite the fact that neither of us are children ….

  2. Ohh wow this looks so amazing!!! Yummy! I would totally do this, and maybe I will once I’m in London. For now, I’m on a sweets-free diet because of some health concerns – it’s really hard.

    1. Hi Amanda
      Yes. They are extremely fun. Something we don’t do often so it’s enjoyable when we do. I am s lover of green tea, so I enjoyed one of the flowering teas available there.
      Yes. I saw your post. Thank you so much for the feature. Have a great day. X

      1. Yes, it is is, and it is a bit hard to find. The Tea Centre franchise sometimes stocks it. There are calendula leaves and orange petals or blossoms of some kind in it. So fruity without being fruity, I think!

      1. Hello dear Lorelle!
        Sorry I have been a little absent…things are getting busy around here now.
        But you will always now be on my read must so if I’m in and out please excuse me.
        Yes, three of us met and it was just amazing.
        Thank you for asking how I’m going.
        Yes, time flies with the children and it’s special to have times like this to look back on Lorelle. Your children are fortunate to have a very insightful and caring mum.
        Wishing you well and enjoy the rest of your week too. (Yes, I’m keeping warm today but it’s good practise for London👌)
        Until soon,
        Di 💕💐

  4. I’ve never attempted proper afternoon tea with my five-year-old – one of the few things which feels trickier with young kids but she is a huge fan of the book and I suspect this would go down equally well! Thanks for linking up with #citytripping

  6. So you love afternoon tea and eating gorgeous cake. And you want to see the sights of London? Fancy a London bus tour with a difference?

    How does the idea of eating cake while seeing the sights of London sound to you? If you do you’ll love the B Bakery Afternoon Tea bus tour/ – classic afternoon tea while seeing the sights of London on board an iconic red Routemaster bus is a rather unique experience.

    For a while we’d said we must give the Afternoon Tea Bus a go but never got around to it. So, when we won Afternoon Tea for two at a social media meetup in January we were absolutely delighted! Getting to ride London’s iconic vintage Routemaster is a treat, to do it whilst eating tasty cake… awesome!! 😊 😋 😎
