Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland come's to life in a themed afternoon tea at the Taj, St James Court. 51 Buckingham Gate.

A few minutes walk from Buckingham Palace and the Houses Of Parliament.

Afternoon tea is served in the elegant Kona dining room.

The fabulous mad hatter's hat sits nicely on the window sill accompanied by a silver teapot set.

The tables are all beautifully decorated with long stem silk pink roses, large playing cards and strands of pearls draped over the sugar bowl and the 

potted peony.

The sandwiches, cakes and scones scored 10/10

Freshly made to suit all age groups.

My personal favourite is Tuna Mayonnaise On White Bread.

The Strawberry Flavour Potion is a great touch.

I found the yoghurt drink refreshing a nice break before the cakes and pastries.

A good selection of loose teas and coffees.

Definitely an exceptional afternoon tea with impeccable service.
