“Sweets to the sweet” Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet. Shakespeare's Globe lives up to this in every way through its afternoon tea. The stunning spread is inspired by the journeys of the characters, from mulberries from the lovers’ tree to Oberon’s love potion. There’ll be no eye of newt in sight. Please bear in mind when booking, from the 2 March, this afternoon tea will include English Hush Heath sparkling instead of Prosecco. Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday at 1.00pm and Sunday 12.00pm.
