A popular fictional character visits an iconic London hotel!
The feel-good ritual that every visitor of London seeks is an elegant afternoon tea accompanied by delicious treats, a tradition that goes back to 1840 when the Duchess of Belford set the trend for snacking with Britain’s favourite beverage before dinner. One of the most whimsical ones is surely The Official Peter Rabbit ™ Afternoon Tea served in the light-filled Terrace at The Dilly Hotel which brings to life the classic story by London author Beatrix Potter.
All family members adore the themed treats including the “Flower-Pot Hideout”, an edible chocolate pot with chamomile mousse, blackberry, chocolate ‘mud’ and sponge cake and the “Magnificent Mushroom”, a strawberry ganache in the shape of a toadstool with a crunchy meringue stem!
First opened in 1908 as The Piccadilly Hotel, the iconic London hotel has played host to many show-stopping Christmas parties over the years and knows how to put on a good show. Its first Christmas as new independent hotel The Dilly will be one to remember with guests greeted into the hotel by a 14ft Christmas tree designed by Pulbrook & Gould luxury London florists and on selected dates from 3rd December, there will be traditional Christmas carols by Oriana Choir, raising money for The Dilly’s partner charity, St James’s Church Piccadilly Winter Night Shelter.
As for The Dilly’s Official Peter Rabbit™ Afternoon Tea, there will be an even more extravagant festive version that will feature a selection of savoury and sweet treats finished with an edible snowman made from meringue created by The Dilly’s Head Pastry Chef.
