Spooky afternoon tea at The Royal Horseguards hotel

This October, The Royal Horseguards hotel, located on the banks of the Thames, is celebrating this spooky time of year with a Halloween afternoon tea.

Spend an afternoon enjoying the Halloween-themed menu, designed by the hotel’s pastry chef Joanne Todd. Goodies include cobweb cotton candy, sticky-chocolate ‘coffin’ cakes and bitter-chocolate witches hats.

These festive treats, along with finger sandwiches and fruit scones, can be enjoyed with one of the hotel’s seasonal teas, such as spiced chai with cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.

The menu will be available from 26 October to 5 November and costs £35 for adults and £12 for children. To book, visit the hotel's website.
