Sometimes you just need to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Luckily, the beautiful countryside of Richmond isn’t far away…
High above the rolling meadows and wandering deer of this royal park, The Petersham Hotel stands proudly atop Richmond Hill – the perfect perch for a spot of afternoon tea. More specifically The Poppy Afternoon Tea, which comes complete with thick cut salmon sandwiches, homemade poppy seed scones, bitter chocolate and praline Opera cakes and poppy seed shortbread biscuits.
Although no persuasion is needed, it’s good to know that all your indulgence will be for a good cause! For every Poppy themed tea The Petersham will donate £2 to The Poppy Factory, home of the Remembrance Sunday Poppies.
Sit back, enjoy the panoramic views and forget about the urban sprawl… well at least for a while anyway.
