Your Guided Tour will be followed by a sumptuous Afternoon Tea from our friends Swan Bar & Restaurant. The A Midsummer Night’s Dream Afternoon Tea includes a selection of treats inspired by the play and worthy of the fairy queen herself. A collection of sweet and savoury delights, many of which can be traced back to the food and characters seen in the play, is served on bespoke Dream-inspired crockery specially designed by illustrator Annika Wester.

Your overnight stay will be in a beautiful central London hotel with our Hotel Partner, Edwardian Hotels. Edwardian London is a collection of individual four and five star hotels in prestigious locations, from the bijou boutique to large-scale luxury. As part of your prize you will enjoy one night’s stay in a luxury double-room, with a delightful breakfast in one of the most desirable locations in central London.

A hotel room including a luxurious double bed, armchair, in greys and whites.

Animated image of a Robin with snow falling

Feed him with apricocks and dewberries,
With purple grapes, green figs, and mulberries;
The honey-bags steal from the humble-bees,
And for night-tapers crop their waxen thighs
And light them at the fiery glow-worm’s eyes

— A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act III scene 1
