Big Rooftop Tea And Golf Party at Selfridges London

Selfridges London, which was recently awarded the World’sBest Department Store Award, has reopened its legendary rooftop by launching The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party, a celebration of all things British honoring the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics. Running until the beginning of September, this one-of-a-kind rooftop terrace will offer guests The Highest Tea On Oxford Street By Daylesford Café alongside a round of crazy mini-golf.

“We are very excited to see two quintessentially British brands, Daylesford and Selfridges, join forces to create the ‘highest tea served on Oxford Street’. Celebrating this great British tradition, our chefs will be using award-winning produce from our farm, to create a unique Daylesford twist on afternoon tea, throughout the summer,” commented Jamie Mitchell, Daylesford CEO.

 

 

Transformed into a Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory meets Alice in Wonderland hybrid wonderland, the newly themed rooftop was created by British jellymongers and food architects extraordinaire – Sam Bompas and Harry Parr of Bompas & Parr. Designed to look like a giant display of cakes reminiscent of famous London landmarks, the new 9-hole golf course will be a treat for the senses.

Harry Parr of Bompas & Parr stated “Novelty golf and exciting food are long time bed-fellows. El Bulli, once ‘the world’s best restaurant’, started life with a miniature golf course. In recent years the connection has been lost. We plan to readdress this with the seven wonders of London realised as cake-inspired golf obstacles.”
