Bonfire Night Explosive Afternoon Tea at Royal Horseguards, London

For those readers that are not aware in England every year on the fifth of November the whole country celebrates the infamous Guy Fawkles failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament. The Royal Horseguards Hotel this year (2011) held a special Afternoon Tea in honour of this event. This charming hotel is located in central London, with the nearest tube station being Charing Cross and it's also just a short walk from some of London's most popular destinations Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace.

The Royal Horseguards Hotel oozes traditional British charm, and is everything you would expect visually from a five-star hotel. Chelsie and I were shown through to the Lounge where we sat in front of a large log fire; a cosy setting to avoid the bitter cold English November Nights. The staff throughout the tea were very attentive, and highly humours in light of some misbehaving sparklers for our TNT chocolate bombs!

Chelsie: This special Guy Fawkes inspired afternoon tea at the five-star Royal Horseguards hotel was fantastic! I Really enjoyed this afternoon tea having done many classic afternoon teas its always fun to have a change, So this bonfire night instead of spending the night out in the cold, delicious food by a roaring fire seemed a much better game plan.

Katie: The Bonfire Night Afternoon Tea included all aspects of the traditional afternoon tea (sandwiches, scones, clotted cream and choice of tea's!) but ALSO featured these cheeky extra's ; A hot chocolate shot with toasted marshmallow, TNT exploding white chocolate and chilli ganache truffles bombs complete with a fuse made from a noodle, Gunpowder tea infused macaroons, roasted chestnut mini cupcakes, mini toffee apple lollies and mulled wine jelly!

'Remember remember the fifth of November gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot....

Traditional Afternoon Tea in The Lounge is served daily, 

3pm - 6pm
