To celebrate its 150th birthday year, St Pancras International has teamed up with Fortnum & Mason to offer guests a unique Afternoon Tea experience, complete with the opportunity to hear fascinating tales of the station’s past in an hour-long historic walking tour.
As well as exploring the stunning design of the station, guests will learn about the threat to demolish the building in the 20th century and its rebirth in the 21st century as a destination for premium shopping, eating and drinking, as well as the new Eurostar Terminal.
After digesting the history of this iconic London building, guests will sit down to enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea at the station’s elegant and iconic tea salon, Fortnum & Mason.
They will be served a decadent spread including Fortnum’s smoked salmon and tartare dressing on granary bread; plain and fruit scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve; and a pot of Fortnum’s famous tea for one (see full menu below).
