Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea at Eden – 10th June 2017

It was an enchanting day at The Garden of Eden as guests were transported to a world more magical than their own.

This magnificent Afternoon Tea featured not only the most scrumptious of sweet and savoury treats but also a visit from some of the most unusual, mad guests. Food on offer included Clock Face Macaroons, Strawberry Toadstool and Queen of Hears Delice.

From the Mad Hatter himself to some feline friends, this was an Afternoon Tea like no other.

The adult-only afternoon tea was wash washed down with champagne as well as some music from a live DJ. Boasting incredible views of Liverpool’s magnificent skyline, we were joined by hen parties, those celebrating birthdays and families who all had a memorable day.
