This is perhaps my favorite, and one of my most memorable, afternoon teas – the Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea London. A playful Alice In Wonderland theme will delight and surprise with every detail on the table. From the menus tucked inside vintage books, to sugar cubes stored in music boxes, and even marshmallows made in the shape of magical mushrooms.
Mad Hatter’s Tea London
Having afternoon tea is a must-do for any trip to London. But if you want an experience that’s more unique and full nostalgia, the Mad Hatter’s Tea is one I’d definitely recommend.
I went with some friends during one of my trips to London. And from the moment we arrived, we knew we were in for a special treat. The table was set with whimsically crowned King Of Hearts tea pots and napkins wrapped in fun riddles and rhymes to spark conversation. Gourmet teas were beautifully presented in perfume bottles that we passed around like magic potions, choosing which scent delighted our senses the most.
The tiered dessert towers of sweets and savory sandwiches were adorned with marshmallow mushrooms and clock-shaped Victoria Sponge Cakes. And to complete the Mad Hatter’s Tea theme, there were even little glass bottles filled with fruity elixirs labeled “drink me.” So down the rabbit hole of delicious delights we went!
Plan Ahead For Your Afternoon Tea
As with any afternoon tea experience in London, I definitely recommend you call ahead for reservations. But especially for this one since it is more unique than most. Weekdays are easier to reserve than weekends and prices range from £48 per person. No fancy dresses are required, though they could be fun! But if you’re popping in for an afternoon of fun and refreshment after sightseeing, you should be okay wearing jeans and a sweater.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea London was deliciously fun, and a must-do experience for any tea-lovers visiting London. Check out our photo gallery and more information for making reservations below.

Really interesting place. I will definitely going to visit it. Especially liked little glass bottles filled with fruity elixirs labeled “drink me.” How is it?

Good! The little “drink me” elixirs were like a mango puree. Definitely worth experiencing the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

This is so inspiring. I attended a similar mad hatter’s tea party event at the Ubud Food Festival in Bali and it was amazing. Love your blog!

I hear this tea is fantastic! Living in London as a blogger I get to enjoy so many fun events, but haven’t made it to this one yet. Other themed teas to consider the next time you are here are the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tea at One Aldwych, the science or Wimbledon tea at Ampersand Hotel and the afternoon tea at the Playboy Club (my husband’s favourite!). I’ve reviewed all of them on my blog ‘Sunny in London’ and highly recommend the locations. Now, I must get going, ‘I’m late! I’m late! for a very important date….” 🙂
I thought that the food here is a bit hit and miss. I certainly enjoyed the smoked salmon scotch egg. I could have eaten 10! The desserts were a bit disappointing. However, everything looked great in pictures!
Lovely article. I love London! My favorite restaurant is Core by Clare Smyth listed here https://good-food-restaurants.weebly.com/. I can’t wait to go back there! Good luck with your blog! You’re doing a great job!
