    Science Afternoon Tea

    Our Science Afternoon Tea won Best Themed Afternoon Tea at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018 and is gaining huge popularity in London. It is a one-of-a-kind experience, and unique to The Ampersand.

    Our inspiration came from our South Kensington neighbour, the Science Museum, just five minutes from our front door. Here, they experiment with sounds and visuals, making each experience interactive. We wanted to do the same with our food. 

    You can expect a mix of exciting and curious dishes, from jams served in petri dishes, to chocolate spacemen and dinosaur biscuits. Each treat is expertly prepared by our chefs, and served with tea, coffee and — if you like — Champagne. 

    Our Science Afternoon Tea is served 12.30pm to 9.00pm from Monday to Saturday and 12.30pm to 6.00pm on Sunday. 

    For a grown up twist on The Hotel’s Famous Science Afternoon Tea why not indulge yourself with our newly launched "Tea Pot-Tails" available 12.30pm to 9.00pm from Thursday to Saturday. See our Tea Pot Tails here.
