Afternoon Tea With Paddington Bear – Marmalade Seals the Deal at the Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments

November 1, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

The athenaeum hotel and apartments has released a special ‘Paddington Tea’ and a family apartment package (available from 1st November until the end of December) in celebration of the English release of the new ‘Paddington’ bear film.  Paddington, the film’s namesake is springing to life from a classic children’s book.

Paddington famously kept a supply of marmalade sandwiches under his hat. At the kids- friendly Athenaeum there are more ways than one for him to get his paws sticky. For every Paddington Tea booked at £39.50 per person at the hotel will donate £5 to Action Medical Research for which Paddington Bear has been the official mascot for over 35 years.428089_num1023306_600x600

The special tea menu includes scones accompanied by the finest thick-cut English Marmalade and traditional finger sandwiches with a Paddington twist – Marmalade Glazed Ham with Clementine Marmalade on Onion Bread.  The hotel’s famous cake trolley has had a marmalade makeover too and includes many luscious treats including Chocolate Tea Cups filled with Orange and White Chocolate Mousse and Orange Bakewell Tarts.

The famously luxurious Athenaeum townhouse apartments are offering Paddington family stay packages from £468  – including a Paddington afternoon tea served in the apartment and your very own furry Paddington to take home.  The offer will appeal to parents and kids who all want to follow Visit London’s Bear Trail.

The Athenaeum is a paw’s throw away from many of the 50 Paddington Bear statues around London to celebrate the film. The special Bear Trail enjoys the patronage of many of the starring actors who are helping to bring the statues to life. (Think Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, and David Beckham.)

The Athenaeum is a true family friendly hotel; from the dedicated kids concierge who has special recommendations and games for children of all ages, to milk and cookies at bedtime – nothing is too much trouble.
