Hilton Syon Park, MOOD In the Park Restaurant and Babingtons Blends Tea, celebrate National Tea Day
Babingtons Blends and Hilton Syon Park have united to celebrate the great British tradition of Afternoon Tea by launching two delicious afternoon teas, the Signature & The Pink Lady. £1 from each Pink Lady Afternoon tea will be donated to the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Founded by two British Ladies and friends, Miss Anna Maria Babington, and Miss Isabel Cargill, since 1893, Babingtons Tea Rooms at the foot of Rome’s iconic Spanish Steps, has been serving fine teas to the world’s most discerning tea connoisseurs, always with a dash of British eccentricity, wit & style.
In 2022 Babingtons Blends was launched in the UK, featuring 10 of Rome's clients' and customers' favourites.
“Today I am extremely proud to share my luxury blends with Hilton Syon Park, in this truly stunning and tranquil location. Each of the Babingtons' blends tells a unique story about our ‘family affair’ with tea and I hope guests will enjoy them with their Afternoon tea, as much as I have enjoyed creating and of course drinking them myself.” Chiara Bedini, joint CEO of Babingtons Blends
Mood in The Park Restaurant at Hilton Syon Park
The Signature Afternoon Tea (£44 pp) and The Pink Lady Afternoon Tea (£49pp) will be enjoyed within this true hidden gem featuring idyllic views of the surrounding parkland.
Hilton London Syon Park sits on the edge of the two-hundred-acre Syon House estate, an English pastoral setting that has served as the country home of the Duke of Northumberland for over 400 years. Syon House, his London residence, offers an opportunity to tour the last surviving ducal estate in Greater London.
Guests can view and explore the Great Conservatory, built in the 1830s. The conservatory lies on a tidal meadow, home to more than 200 species of trees, which is flooded twice a day by the Thames. There are over forty acres of gardens in which to experience the timeless magic of an aristocratic country house.
Hilton London Syon Park was built on the ground The London Butterfly House. The facility contained hundreds of the world's most exotic species of butterflies. It also contained a small aviary. Today, we explore beauty, transformation, and worldwide migration of butterflies, taking our Guests on the journey through the hotel, luxury Kallima Spa and our food & beverage outlets.
‘Given our hotel’s history and the level of luxury that is synonymous with Syon Park, we imagined a world where there's no such thing as a bad cup of tea and it made perfect sense for us to create this unique and desirable Afternoon Tea experience. Our partnership with the esteemed tea experts from Babingtons Blends for the launch of the Signature Afternoon Tea and Pink Lady Afternoon Tea at Hilton London Syon Park, will take this carefully crafted experience to a beautiful, varied, and delicious world, where butterflies will lead our guests to the sunny side of life. And let's agree, we all deserve a little sunshine’ Lukasz Stawicki – Hotel Operation Manager at Hilton London Syon Park
Indulge and enjoy a quintessential afternoon tea featuring a prepared selection of traditional sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and seasonal preserves and handmade sweet treats and pastries.
The afternoon teas are paired with Babingtons Blends launch collection of ten speciality blends.
The collection features a delicious mix of black, green, white, and herbal teas and fresh Ingredients including roses, vanilla, elderflower, bergamot, chai spices, rooibos, berries, and passion fruit.

‘I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to launch a contemporary and classic Afternoon Tea, utilising the influence drawn from the cultural heritage of Syon House. Silent Pool gin, with links to Ralph Percy, the 12th Duke of Northumberland is the star in our exquisite White peach & silent pool gin sweet treat, down to our delicate butterfly tuiles. Our Afternoon Tea will be served in courses, so that you can relax and saviour your beautiful Babington Blends tea, whilst building your anticipation for what delicious delights are coming next.’ Simon Nightingale – Executive Head Chef at Hilton London Syon Park
