Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea review

Visitors to London’s West End, and in particular those heading to watch the hugely successful Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, can enjoy an afternoon tea that will transport them to a world of pure imagination.

The treat at the One Aldwych Hotel, is to celebrate the long-running show, based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book, which is being shown nearby at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
The spectacular, tasty and magical themes of the show are brought to life in the fantastic tea.
A crisp glass of Champagne or, even better, a ‘Cocktail Charlie’ begins the epic tea.

The cocktail bubbles and smokes as it arrives in a glass teapot, before the savoury selection arrives, with a colourful flourish.

The sandwiches include a tasteful twist on classic smoked salmon and cream cheese, egg mayonnaise and beef and horseradish among others delicious offerings.
But the piece de resistance is the sweet selection.

A dizzying array of saccharine scrumptiousness awaits the lucky tea taster.

Warm blueberry brioches, scones and delicious jams with clotted cream, doughnuts on sticks, caramel and chocolate milk in mini milk bottles, Werther’s Original candyfloss and other delights are an absolute delight.
The tea varies from time to time depending on seasonal flavours, but maintains the same magical opulence.
