On Monday 13th May, The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel, will be deliciously launching a new afternoon tea inspired by Roald Dahl’s much loved book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which opens as a new stage musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane Drury Lane on 11th June.
This marvellous & fun Afternoon Tea will be taking guests on a journey through the sweet, colourful and of course chocolatey world of Charlie and friends!
Upon arrival at the hotel guests are welcomed with a shot of a Fizzy Lifting drink that sets the scene with a lingering sparkle on the tongue. Guest can then choose their tea from one of the hotel’s 18 loose teas which between May and September will include a special Willy Wonka tea.

To end this adventure each guest finishes off with an everlasting gobstopper, candy cane and lollipop, the ideal selection of sweets to eat your way home!
AND.....The magic continues as guests leave with a ‘Chesterfield Mayfair Golden Ticket’ just like Charlie does in the book.

Prizes will vary from a two night weekend stay in a Junior Suite, an overnight stay in a Superior King room, magnum of Champagne, a discount on your next afternoon tea and a complimentary glass of Champagne on your next visit.
