Four Seasons Hotel London Celebrates Burlington Arcade’s 200th Anniversary with Special Afternoon Tea

The Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane is celebrating the Burlington Arcade's 200th anniversary with a special afternoon tea.

Following a year of exclusive collections, installations, events and special-edition product launches commemorating this very special year, a quintessentially British dining experience has been created by Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, which is  just a short walk away from the Burlington Arcade.

Head Pastry Chef David Oliver has created five bespoke cakes inspired by the luxury heritage, architecture, British charm, and uniqueness of the Burlington Arcade:

The Burlington Beadle: Representing the world’s smallest police force, this stand-out pastry is modelled on Head Beadle Mark Lord. This light blueberry cheesecake is made with vanilla, sable Breton and blueberry compote.

The Velvet Hat: Inspired by Victorian fashion, and shopping traditions at the Burlington Arcade including top hat shopping. White chocolate covered Joconde sponge, raspberry jam and rich vanilla mascarpone cream create a modern take on the traditional Victoria sponge.

The Joss Flower: Inspired by the limited-edition fragrance created to celebrate Burlington Arcade’s 200th Anniversary by Atkinson 1799. Layered peach and jasmine jelly, pink pepper cream, soft almond sponge, vanilla and gardenia mousse make up this aromatic cake, all infused with notes from the bespoke fragrance, and topped with a delicate sugar joss flower.

The Burlington Battenberg: Reflecting the iconic marble floor of Burlington Arcade, this Victorian classic sliced chocolate and bergamot cake is wrapped with this statement geometric pattern.

The Gold Nugget: Ending the sensory journey at the intricate gold windows of the Arcade’s Piccadilly entrance, this 24K gold covered nugget features a passion fruit and angostura bitter caramel, praline crostillant, with 70 percent Trinidadian chocolate and rum whipped ganache.

Working with some of the finest home-grown producers and suppliers, the Burlington Afternoon Tea includes classic British sandwiches in five varieties: cucumber with mint and cream cheese on white bread; Lambton and Jackson smoked salmon with lemon cream cheese and radish on brown bread; Coronation chicken on granary bread; curried egg with Montgomery cheddar, truffle on brioche bread; and Portland crab salad with preserved lemon butter on white toast.

The Burlington Afternoon Tea is finished off with freshly baked warm fruit and plain scones, served with clotted cream, strawberry and vanilla jam, and mandarin and cedar pine nut marmalade.

 Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane guests can toast the 200th anniversary of Burlington Arcade with a glass of chilled Champagne before choosing from a selection of teas from around the world.

The Burlington Afternoon Tea is available at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane until 31 December 2019 and is priced from GBP 46 per person.
