The Waldorf Hilton

Aldwych London, WC2B 4DD, United Kingdom

The Waldorf Hilton Hotel is iconic. Built in 1908, it is one of the longest standing venues on Aldwych, and has been referred to as ‘The grand dame of Aldwych.’ The Hotel blends Edwardian grandeur with modern comfort and is situated in the heart of London’s famous theatre district. The Royal Opera House and Covent Garden are a four-minute walk away, with The British Museum and Trafalgar Square within a mile of the door. The Waldorf Hilton is home to a Signature Bar (Good Godfrey’s), a Signature Restaurant (Homage), The Wild Monkey bar and their newest addition, The T Room. The hotel is equipped with lavish meeting and events spaces and an Executive Lounge.

Inspired by La Belle et La Bête, a fairytale written and first published by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740 and famously re-told by Walt Disney Feature Animation as “Beauty and the Beast”.
‘A Winter’s Tale’ afternoon tea is thoughtfully curated by Executive Chef Luke Rayment-Blakey to celebrate the delicate marriage of bold flavours and delicate techniques, playfully incorporating some of the much-loved scenes and characters with a Waldorf twist.
