Celebrate Roald Dahl with the Shard's delumptious afternoon tea

Join the worldwide celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl with a tailor-made afternoon tea based on his magical stories.

The playful menu at the Aqua Shard is presented to you as an edible book, and all of the sweet and savoury treats take inspiration from one of Dahl’s great works.

The Dahlicious treats include a BFG breakfast sandwich, Mr Twit's bird pie, a James and the Giant Peach inspired peach meringue as well as a rich 'DIY' hot chocolate equipped with melting chocolate spoon. And all are presented within a Charlie’s Great Glass Elevator stand and served on bespoke crockery depicting Quentin Blake's famous illustrations.

The special tea runs until 30th September on level 32 of The Shard and is served Monday to Friday between 1-5pm, priced at £45 per person.
