Terrace At The Dilly boasts a Victorian glass atrium with floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony overlooking Piccadilly, and decked out with an array of foliage, the setting perfectly echoes The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

General Manager at formally Le Méridien Piccadilly, James Olivier, mentioned: “Creating a dedicated Afternoon Tea in celebration of the iconic British classic Tale of Peter Rabbit seemed like a perfect fit for our family guests. As the story is so rich in adventure and colour, our expert pastry team could really have fun with creating a nostalgic experience for the whole family to enjoy”.

Izzy Richardson, Head of Brand, Penguin Ventures said: “It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with Le Méridien Piccadilly, and the team there have created an absolutely beautiful and delicious offering. The Peter Rabbit Afternoon Tea is so clearly inspired by Beatrix Potter’s best-loved Tale - guests are in for a real treat!”

Located in the heart of the West End and well-known for its unique family-friendly programmes aimed to inspire young explorers, the hotel’s new family package is perfect for discovering London with little ones.

Children will be given an array of Peter Rabbit goodies including a purse, drawstring bag, and a bespoke Le Méridien Piccadilly Peter Rabbit book for bedtime reading, as well as the chance to take part in a dedicated Peter Rabbit trail across the hotel.

Inviting little ones to discover the hotel’s secret hideouts, the fun, educational trail reveals interesting facts about the Peter Rabbit story and encourages character drawing and tracing. Through the guided hunt, children with an accompanying adult, must find letters and characters scattered across the hotel, meanwhile discovering areas such as the ‘kids-only’ book den, offering an array of novels, all the way through to the hotel’s pool, one of the largest in central London.
