Step into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl at Aqua Shard with a special afternoon tea to mark the 100th anniversary of the children’s author’s birth.

The man behind The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox, among other weird and wonderful tales, is celebrated with this tea featuring sweet and savoury delights.

Enjoy The BFG’s breakfast sandwich housing fried eggs and bacon; tuck into Pelly’s favourite smoked salmon sandwich based on The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me; and delve into Mr. Twit’s famous bird pie. Sweet bites include a meringue filled with peaches and cream inspired by James and the Giant Peach, and The Witches’ chocolate mice.

Served in Charlie’s Great Glass Elevator, each afternoon tea is accompanied by a range of teas from The Rare Tea Company or a hot chocolate with a melting spoon for kids; while the menu has been created as a storybook.

You can also splash out on bubbles (not frobscottle) with a champagne version of the tea featuring a glass of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne.

Monday to Friday: 1pm to 5pm
