Chelsea Flower Show Afternoon Tea

Let the flavours blossom.

Celebrate Chelsea Flower Show with our Themed Afternoon Tea this May

Spring in Chelsea marks the long-anticipated return of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the prestigious celebration of all things gardening, both design and horticultural. With stunning exhibits, the quintessentially British annual event is held at the end of May over the course of 5 days, with the first two days exclusively open for members. Amidst the stunning and traditional surroundings you will be able to indulge in your horticultural passions whilst also learning more about the influence on health and wellbeing and the science behind growing.

Here at the Draycott Hotel, we are extremely proud to support this well-loved event in the neighbourhood, showing the diversity and creativity of the Chelsea and Kensington Borough. To celebrate the horticultural festivities and nod to the scents and flavours of spring, our culinary experts have once again taken inspiration from this local, seasonal event to create our Chelsea Flower Show themed afternoon tea.

What delights await with your Chelsea Flower Show afternoon tea? On the menu this month will be a choice between plain or fruit-filled scones; both can be enjoyed with or without a delicious homemade strawberry jam and Jersey clotted cream. From the savoury selection, treat yourself to our smoked salmon, crème cheese and dill crostini; a classic roast beef and horseradish sandwich; or our specially created floral avocado & garden salads or prawn cocktail shot.

There are sweet treats aplenty in the dessert section of your Chelsea Flower Show afternoon tea, including a sweet caramel biscuit; sweet and tangy mini lemon tarts and a beautiful selection of macaroons. For the chocolate lovers, we’ve also created a delicious chocolate mousse and a decadent black forest gateau cube. What better way enjoy all of the above than with a clean and fresh elderflower Royale spritz or a selection of fine loose teas from around the world.

So whether you are staying in one of our rooms or suites; are a visitor to the city for sightseeing sights or attending an event; or you may just be looking to experience a specially themed afternoon tea with your friends and family; the Draycott Hotel has specialised in creating bespoke afternoon teas and you are all very welcome to join us in sampling our newest selection; available throughout May.
