Afternoon Tea & Tour




A special treat for Mother’s Day -

Afternoon tea with Prosecco, and a tour of the Castle.


Enjoy some quality time with your mum on Mother's Day weekend by treating her to a unique afternoon tea experience at the historic Severndroog Castle in Greenwich. Not only will you be delighted by culinary treats, but our viewing platform at the top of the Castle boasts some of the most spectacular panoramic views over London and the surrounding counties. A feast for the senses!


Starting at 13:30, you will have a special 30-minute guided group tour of the two main rooms of the Castle, to find out about Sir William and Lady James, the building’s uses over the years and the campaign to save the Castle. You will also be granted access to our Viewing Platform to admire uninterrupted views of London. 


Afternoon Tea will then be served in the historic Lady James Room, with wonderful views of the surrounding ancient woodland through the gothic windows.  This will be a real treat, provided by onsite Terrace Catering under the direction of head chef, Christopher Hackett, who shares a passion for food and in creating memorable dining experiences at Severndroog. He was ‘Young Chef of the Year’ in 2008 and runner up for the BBC2 show ‘The Restaurant’, working alongside Raymond Blanc, and has worked in some of the finest restaurants in London, including Fat Duck, Bluebird and The Savoy. 


A set menu afternoon tea will be served at 14:15 to include a selection of sandwiches, scones with preserve and clotted cream, a selection of homemade cakes, a pot of tea, plus a glass of bubbly!
