Since London is suitably consumed by Dior Fever at the moment, I figured it would be insulting not to visit the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge to try out their new Dior afternoon tea, wouldn’t you agree?
Following the success of the V&A’s stunning Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition (link to that post below), London has not disappointed Dior fans, as galleries with stunning Dior pictures were shown earlier this year (Proud Galleries blog post below) talks and lectures about the fashion house seem to be popping up all over, and of course it would not be a suitable British tribute to the House of Dior without an afternoon tea!
So my best friend (Hey Krystal!) and I decided that we too could not miss out on this beautiful afternoon tea, and bit the (super-duper expensive) bullet and took ourselves off to The Berkeley Hotel last week where we had the most incredible and unique afternoon tea experience!
It is also worth noting that this Afternoon Tea is actually inspired and in collaboration with the Dior exhibition currently running at the V&A. All of the beautiful cakes are based on some of the exhibits on display at the museum, so if you’ve visited, or are going to visit the exhibition soon I would definitely recommend this afternoon tea as a follow up stop!
I really hope you enjoy some of the pictures I took, and that it inspires you to also go. Although, yes, it was expensive the experience was so luxurious and such a treat that it made it all worth it!
