Wimbledon Madness: Tennis-Inspired Tea Cakes at The Dorchester, London

June 24, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Dorchester, LondonIt's that time of year. Passengers arriving at Heathrow International are being treated to strawberries and Cornish clotted cream... Fashionable Pimms-drinking fans flock to Centre Court... Wimbledon has arrived. (For those who've been able to tear themselves away from the FIFA World Cup games, the premier tennis tournament has served up some incredible viewing: namely, the historic match between American John Isner and Nicolas Mahut of France, the longest in professional tennis history.) To get you in the Wimbledon mood, The Dorchester is celebrating the quintessential English summertime event with a Wimbledon-themed Afternoon Tea. Available through Sunday, July 4, with two sittings daily (2:30 pm and 4:45 pm), the Wimbledon Afternoon Teas feature Champagne, tennis inspired cakes and pastries, and strawberries & cream (of course). Priced at £44 per person (£48 per person when you add the berries).
