The Dilly Launches New Parisian Afternoon Tea Experience to Celebrate the 2024 Olympics

To celebrate the 2024 Olympics being hosted in Paris, Piccadilly’s iconic hotel, The Dilly, is launching a brand-new Parisian themed afternoon tea to give visitors a taste of Paris, right in the heart of London. Available from 13th May, the new Parisian afternoon tea will be served at the hotel’s elegant Terrace at The Dilly, replacing its classic London-themed afternoon tea for a limited time only.

The new afternoon tea lineup features a selection of delicious sandwiches with nods to various French flavours, including the Jambon-beurre; a French baguette with sliced ham and cheese, the Crêpe; containing roasted vegetables and soft cheese, Tartines; a sandwich with smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese, and Sandwich Lyonnaise, which is made up of egg mayonnaise and mustard cress served on focaccia.

Diners can relish in a selection of beautifully hand-crafted sweet treats which resemble Olympic symbols and key French landmarks, including The Medal; a yellow macaron with vibrant strawberry and ginger flavourings and The Olympia Column; a Cassis cremeux in the shape of a Greek column. Additional treats include the Eiffel Tower; a biscuit layered with chocolate mousse and mandarin gel, with the famous tower made out of chocolate sat on top, and the Mona Lisa; a decadent pistachio and honey cake featuring the iconic painting. Freshly baked scones with raisins will also grace the Parisian afternoon tea menu.

Guests can also enjoy a steaming cup of tea from the Tea Makers of London alongside their afternoon tea, or even a crisp glass of Pommery Brut Royal Brut NV or Pommery Brut Rosé Royal champagne.

The new Parisian afternoon tea at The Dilly, which is £49 per person, will be available until 30th September and will be served daily from 12:30 – 4pm. Vegetarian and vegan options will also be available, as well as an afternoon tea menu suitable for children for £39.

To celebrate the Parisian afternoon tea launch, The Dilly is partnering with its sister hotel, Leonardo Boutique Hotel Paris Opera, to give one lucky person the chance to win a trip to Paris for two, with a two-night stay at the hotel and return travel from London included. Those who want to be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize simply need to book the Parisian afternoon tea experience through, and a lucky winner will be chosen after the limited edition afternoon tea ends on 30th September.
