London’s Magical Afternoon Tea Is Perfect For Harry Potter Fans

share on:

A wizard-themed afternoon tea has come to Soho, and Harry Potter fans can Expecto be impressed.

You may know of Cutter & Squidge for their mystical Aladdin-themed afternoon tea (which just so happened to be a total sell-out last year) but, starting in May, they’re casting away the Genie and casting spells instead. So now you can become the wizard you always wanted to be! 

Soho’s favourite all-natural bakery has been keeping its latest project under an invisibility cloak for a painfully long time, but the secret is finally out! Their underground space has transformed into a wonderful world of wizardry, known as The Cutter & Squidge School of Alchemy, or The Potion Room.

Cast spells and concoct edible potions before tucking into a magical selection of sweet and savoury, including Yorkshire puddings filled with roast beef and horseradish, classic finger sandwiches, knickerbocker bites, and spectacular drinks served in personal-sized cauldrons. Oh and a little birdy—who looked suspiciously like Hedwig—told us that you should make sure you save a bit of stomach space for a special surprise ending!

The new Potion Room experience launches on May 3rd and you’re promised 2.5 hours of wonderful wizardry, guided by an expert Potion Master. Tickets cost £49.50 per person (£39.50 for children aged 8-12) and you can purchase them here. Every muggle-turned-wizarding-genius will also be given a gift to take home at the end of the experience.

Disclaimer: this experience has no affiliation with JK Rowling’s Harry Potter franchise.
