Laurent-Perrier Afternoon Tea Experience – 21st and 22nd October
Searcys and Laurent-Perrier Champagne have teamed up to create the most luxurious afternoon tea in London this October.
With a strong focus on the Champagne and Searcys heritage, the afternoon tea experience, guided by a charming Victorian Butler, aims to highlight and capture the emotion behind the two brands at the flagship Searcys venue, Pavilion Road- a Georgian townhouse based in Knightsbridge. Featuring a champagne fountain, Lauren-Perrier experts who will pair the afternoon tea offering with a variety of champagnes, and a riddling challenge (a tried and true method for ensuring a champagne holds a clear, crisp colour), this immersive experience also allows some guests to win their very own magnum bottle of Laurent-Perrier.
21st and 22nd of October only from 1pm-3pm and 4pm-6pm.
Each element of the afternoon tea will be paired with a Laurent-Perrier Cuvee. Includes three glasses of champagne, a full afternoon tea offering of finger sandwiches, and gourmet sweet treats.
£75.00 per person.
