With the start of summer comes the start of many opportunities to socialise and enjoy the wonderful weather. This is certainly true in London – the social scene comes alive at this time of year and there are many events on offer which bring crowds of people from all over the globe together. May and June have already brought with them both the Chelsea Flower Show and Royal Ascot, and now we have arrived in July with a spectacularly British event – Wimbledon!
To celebrate the magic of Wimbledon at DUKES LONDON, the team at GBR Restaurant have crafted a limited-edition afternoon tea, filled with indulgent treats themed around everyone’s favourite summer pastime. In collaboration with the East India Tea Company, for a limited time you can take enjoy our Umpire’s Blend Tea when dining with us. This sweet and delicate gunpowder tea is blended with strawberry and garnished with safflower – the perfect choice for summertime. Alongside this, indulge in delicate finger sandwiches, freshy baked scones, and sweet delicacies including Strawberry and Pimms choux buns, Vanilla Cream ‘Tennis Ball’ Lemon Sponge, Eton Mess, and Battenburg. Why not add a glass of champagne to your afternoon treat and toast the champion player?
Taking in all the action at centre court can be tiring work but if you still want to make the most of the glorious British summertime, we can supply your afternoon tea for our exclusive Picnic in the Park. DUKES LONDON is in a wonderful location, in the heart of Mayfair, less than 5-minutes’ walk to two of the most spectacular Royal Parks – the Green Park and St James’ Park. They provide the most wonderful setting for an afternoon basking in the sunshine. We supply everything you need for the perfect picnic including a hamper, rug, cutlery, and glassware. For the ultimate luxury and a truly relaxing experience, our 3-hour butler service is the perfect choice – your own personal butler will deliver and set up your picnic and be on hand throughout to attend to all your needs.
Despite being the oldest tennis tournament in the world, London still comes alive every year during the Wimbledon season and it is an exciting and thrilling experience. Whether you are lucky enough to secure courtside tickets or join the crowds of people watching the games on the big screens at Murray Mound, the atmosphere is electric and can’t be rivalled.
