The Waldorf Astoria in Edinburgh is offering locals a five star afternoon tea to be enjoyed at home.

The Waldorf Astoria hotel’s Peacock Alley can’t, at present, welcome guests for afternoon tea but you can now enjoy the sweet treats at home.

The hotel’s pastry chefs have created a Champagne afternoon tea for collection or delivery within Edinburgh – and it’s wizarding themed.

Delivery is to postcodes EH1-17 and the Harry Potter themed treats can be washed down with a bottle of Laurent Perrier Champagne, which is included in the price.

Posting a picture of the afternoon tea on the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh’s social media, the team wrote: “Double, double toil and treat…Order something sweet to eat!

“Our Wonderful World of Wizardry Afternoon Tea at Home with @ChampagneLPUK is available to for collection and delivery to postcodes EH1-17.”

As well as the wizard themed afternoon tea, which includes golden snitch, cauldron and sorting hat themed cakes, there’s also a classic afternoon tea that can be delivered to homes across Edinburgh.

The champagne afternoon tea at home is priced at £99 for two people and includes a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne.

​It’s available for delivery Wednesday to Sunday from 11am to 2pm and for collection from the hotel daily from 11am to 2pm.
