Lauren Does London: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Themed Tea

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Tea at One Aldwych Hotel

One of the things that I love about going to new cities is the food. I’m always the one trying to look up fun places to go and enjoy. When I was researching for my trip to London, I came across this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed tea, hosted at the One Aldwych Hotel. The hotel is surrounded by theaters, and one of those shows was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It would be a fun day to do the tea and then see the show, but my sister and I just went to the tea, and boy was it yummy!

We were seated at a table for two and there were courses, from the savory lunch items, to the fun dessert choices. I’m not a tea drinker, but my sister really loved the one that she got. Regardless, we both highly enjoyed the food and had a really nice time. I love that the theme was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it just added a little pizazz to the afternoon tea, especially when the desserts came out. There were mini chocolate milkshakes and even a chocolate golden egg!

Both my sister and I had a wonderful time, and I would definitely recommend this tea if you visit London anytime soon. Granted, any afternoon tea is probably something you should experience – after all, when in England, right?

  1. Awww what a fun post!! I haven’t been to London in ages so have no idea what the hip, cool spots are but I love this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory inspired tea room!

  2. I love doing teas! I visited Waterstone’s book shop in London. I need to go to Foyle’s as well. I’d like to visit there again since the time we went it was so cold and windy it made touring miserable. Lots of neat things to see!

  3. Oh I love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and this tea sounds like so much fun! I haven’t been to London since I was in high school but I hope to go back one day!

  4. I really don’t think you’ve had the full English experience until you’ve attended a tea party. I’ve never really felt the urge to travel before but six weeks into our second hard lock down and I’m looking forward to going away somewhere next year. A tea party sounds lovely. I made scones with jam and cream on the weekend, might have myself a little kitchen tea this weekend.

  5. I love a good tea time, these photos look so fun! We just did a tea time here in St. Louis a couple of weekends ago. I was excited the little shop had opened up again and was offering tea times again!
