Additional options

Those unable to join us for afternoon tea can still experience The Dorchester’s Drawing Room at the new pop-up bar modelled on The Promenade Bar, which will be serving floral cocktails and champagne. The signature cocktail, Her Majesty’s Cup, will be served from a floral teapot and comes with a ‘bar bite’ made-up of a dressed scone, a selection of finger sandwiches and two RHS Chelsea Flower Show inspired pastries.

Can't attend the show?

For those unable to attend the show, we are inviting guests to join us at The Promenade at The Dorchester for a floral inspired champagne afternoon tea, from 22–28 May inclusive. See more details or request a reservation.

This afternoon tea offering is served at The Dorchester as opposed to at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

2018 show tickets are now on sale.
