LONDON - The Waldorf Hilton, London, is celebrating the festive holiday with a Christmas Afternoon Tea, Christmas Tea Dance and charitable yuletide carols. The hotel has partnered with Barnardo's children's charity and local schools to host regular festive carol performances* throughout December, as well as hosting a special Christmas themed Tea Dance.

Christmas Afternoon TeaThe Waldorf Hilton, London, situated on Aldwych, close to Covent Garden, is a tranquil haven for Christmas shoppers who can celebrate the festive season with a Christmas Afternoon Tea. Served daily from 1 p.m - 4 p.m. in the opulent Homage Grand Salon, guests will be able to indulge in delights such as mini mince pies, winter spice Madeleine, red velvet cupcakes, Mont Blanc tart, mandarin délice and gingerbread. Accompanied by a selection of loose leaf teas, guests also have the option to toast with a glass of celebratory Champagne.

On selected dates in December, guests will be serenaded by local schools performing Christmas carol favourites in the lobby of the stylish Good Godfrey's Bar & Lounge. The yuletide carol performances are open to both members of the public and guests. Any donations given in support of the school choirs will be donated to Barnardo's to support their charitable efforts.

The Christmas Afternoon Tea is available to enjoy from 3 December 2013, priced at £35.50 per person and £44.50 with a glass of Champagne.

Christmas Tea DanceThe hotel's popular Tea Dances have also had a festive makeover for the Christmas period. One of the few hotels to still host the traditional Tea Dance, guests can enjoy a Christmas Afternoon Tea whilst taking to the floor of the hotel's English Heritage protected, Palm Court, the very room that inspired the ballroom of the Titanic. Dancing will be accompanied by a live five-piece band, which will entertain visitors with an array of Christmas classics and seasonal favourites.

The Christmas Tea Dance will take place on 15 December 2013 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., priced at £49 per person.
