While afternoon tea is often thought of as a somewhat stuffy affair, London's Sanderson Hotel is turning the daily ritual into a family-friendly event. With a whimsical Mad Hatter theme and a delicious selection of desserts, the event is sure to inspire a sense of childlike wonder in guests of all ages.

The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea is an ongoing event that invites parents and children "to tumble down the rabbit hole for the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland." Every element of the event is designed to be fun for children, with menus hidden in vintage books, music boxes filled with sweets and red velvet cakes shaped like tiny ladybugs. Even the tea served draws inspiration from Lewis Carroll's famous novel, with each one named after a beloved character.

While designed to appeal to children, the Sanderson Hotel's afternoon tea party is sophisticated enough that adults will also be able to join in the fun. As such, the tea party is the perfect outing for families looking to spend quality time together.
