On iconic Park Lane with views of Hyde Park, The Dorchester is a timeless venue to enjoy afternoon teas in the spirit of the Great British Bakeoff. From seasonal specialities to charming teas created with little ones in mind, each selection celebrates the best in British heritage.
The hotel’s executive chefs have developed a selection of finger sandwiches, scones and sweet pastries, which are served fresh every day. Set in the heart of The Dorchester at The Promenade, families enjoy an opulent setting with elegant, welcoming service.
In celebration of the school summer holidays and Afternoon Tea Week (12-18 August 2019), the Dorchester will introduce a complimentary Hyde Park-inspired children's tea for kids up to the age of 12 throughout August 2019. The tea features a teddy bear cupcake, yellow duck, jigsaw puzzle sandwiches, with a side of crudité bites. A delicious chocolate milkshake is served alongside the playful meal as the perfect punctuation to a children's afternoon tea.
