Afternoon Tea & Tour for One

£46.50

Enjoy a guided tour of the Globe Theatre and a visit to the Exhibition followed by Afternoon Tea with prosecco at the Swan Restaurant.


Take a tour of the Globe Theatre and listen to one of our expert storytellers bring the space alive. Discover more about the Globe, the reconstruction process and Shakespeare's London in our extensive Exhibition with complimentary audio guide.

Your experience is completed with a delicious A Midsummer Night’s Dream Afternoon Tea, inspired by scenes of the play.   The tea will be made up of a collection of sweet and savoury delights, many of which can be traced back to the food and characters seen in the play itself. The menu features apricots, which Titania feeds to Bottom when she is cast under the potion’s spell; and mulberries, the tree under which Pyramus and Thisbe agree to meet in the play within a play.

Savoury options include; mulberry and plain scones, herb fed lemon chicken sandwiches, duck egg mayonnaise sandwiches, smoked salmon with grape mustard and a dill pancake and a wild mushroom and whipped goat’s cheese tart. Guests can then enjoy an assortment of treats as sweet as musk-roses, including lemon and thyme cake, strawberry delice with elderflower meringue, chocolate and violet choquettes (blissfully light balls of delicate choux pastry, flavoured with chocolate and violet), and a hibiscus and apricot dessert shot.

The tea is served on bespoke crockery reflecting the themes of the play, specially designed by illustrator Annika Wester.

Roger Bach, Warwick StarStarStarStarStar
The tour was fascinating and the afternoon tea was superb. Only problem was that there was too much for us to eat but the restaurant came up trumps again, they provided a box for the remaining scones & cakes and we were able to have a feast on the train back to Warwick!
Mike Palos, England StarStarStarStarStar
We had a superb day! The tour of the Globe was marvellous, the museum most interesting, the cream tea upstairs in the Swan was also very good with an excellent river view.
