Afternoon tea is often seen as a grown-up activity – but there’s no reason it can’t be enjoyed by little ones too. Numerous hotels and restaurants offer child-friendly afternoon teas, featuring fun twists on the British tradition: think Willy Wonka-inspired pastries, mini hot dogs and retro pic ‘n’ mix – washed down with milky teas and milkshakes. Many have an interactive element too, whether it’s biscuit decorating or fancy dress. And it’s not all about the kids either, as often these sit alongside alternative adults menus, meaning you can feast on finger sandwiches and sip champagne while the children are occupied. Here, we highlight the best child-friendly afternoon teas in London, perfect if you’re looking for an activity for the school holidays or just fancy treating your little one. From a sky-high offering at The Shard to an old-school tea party and a wizard-themed immersive experience, these children’s afternoon teas will not disappoint.
