Guests will be treated to a quintessentially English afternoon tea experience in the hotel’s deluxe Homage Grand Salon, with distinct blends of tea and exquisite finger sandwiches, pastries and cakes all served on the finest quality bone china from Royal Crown Derby Entertains. The afternoon tea occasion has been further refined to include a live harpist and champagne trolley including a vintage champagne option.

Manufactured in the heart of England at the company’s Derby-based factory, Royal Crown Derby Entertains is a range of delicate tableware pieces embellished with iconic patterns from Royal Crown Derby’s distinguished history. Sourced from the company’s extensive pattern archive, Westminster was conceived by Royal Crown Derby Entertains to bring a sense of elegance to a hotel or restaurant table. The range features a distinctive sweeping motif, which has been set against the pure white finish of the bone china and Royal Crown Derby’s signature 22-carat gold border. The Royal Crown Derby Entertains collection comprises all of the fundamental ingredients for a formal afternoon tea. Each piece has been painstakingly designed to deliver the highest quality performance and preserve the subtle intricacies associated with the ceremony.

The Waldorf Hilton, London, has a rich London heritage spanning over a century, with its interior bringing to life the glamour of The Roaring ’20s through an elegant art deco décor. Situated on the tree-lined thoroughfare of Aldwych, the hotel is a stone’s throw from Theatreland and some of the capital’s most iconic attractions.

Peter Beckwith, area general manager, London, Hilton Worldwide, said, “At The Waldorf Hilton, London, we pride ourselves on our heritage and partnering with Royal Crown Derby was an excellent opportunity to expand and take delight in our rich hotel history. Through collaboration of our afternoon tea and the Westminster Collection, guests will be treated to a truly traditional British afternoon tea experience.”

The Royal Crown Derby Entertains collection includes six designs, Chelsea, Westminster, Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, St James and Piccadilly, with an array of shapes available for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner services. The ranges are complemented by a bespoke design service that enables special commissions to be fabricated in Royal Crown Derby’s factory.

John Mohin, sales director, Royal Crown Derby Entertains, comments, “When developing the Royal Crown Derby Entertains collection we drew upon our wealth of history and experience in producing the finest tableware for an afternoon tea ceremony or formal dining occasion. Each of the ranges within our portfolio reflects Royal Crown Derby’s rich heritage of creative artistry and technical skill within its border pattern, with every design sourced from our archive and reinterpreted to meet the demands of the premium hospitality industry.”
