To celebrate Springtime, Sixtyplusurfers has collaborated with St. Ermin’s Hotel in London, Westminster to offer one lucky reader the chance to win Afternoon Tea with Champagne for four people.

St. Ermin’s is an independent hotel located in the heart of Westminster, nestled down a tree-lined courtyard, just a minute’s walk from St. James’s Park tube station and has many of London’s top historical attractions on its doorstep.

Its wide selection of rooms & suites, as well as welcoming public spaces, makes it ideal for both business and leisure travellers. The hotel is also very popular with families and their four-legged members, thanks to its family and pet-friendly rooms.

Steeped in history, the hotel first opened its doors in 1899 and has a long-standing history with spies and espionage. The hotel’s unique blend of historically significant interiors and textural design creates a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

St Ermins Hotel Lobby

St Ermin’s is one of London’s most intriguing historic properties. During the 1940’s Winston Churchill famously held secret meetings in the hotel and set up the Special Operations Executive. 

Visitors to the hotel can take a look at the fascinating display cabinet in the foyer and find out more about the hotel’s interesting wartime background.

A London hotel experience is not complete without the quintessential British tradition of afternoon tea and St. Ermin’s boasts a dedicated Tea Lounge, a stylish space featuring original Rococo plasterwork, overlooking the ornate Lobby.

In summer months, afternoon tea is also available on the outdoor terrace, a rare find in London, this unique destination overlooks the lush courtyard.

St. Ermin’s afternoon tea is a collection of sweet and savoury treats inspired by the seasonal ingredients from the hotel’s very own rooftop kitchen garden.

All afternoon teas are served with freshly baked scones, clotted cream, homemade jam and award-winning teas from The Tea Makers of London. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free afternoon teas are available.

Children are not ignored thanks to the Mini-Gardeners Tea, and this is available on request throughout the school holidays and every weekend.

As the name suggests it reflects the hotel’s roof-top gardens and Bee Terrace; it encourages sticky fingers to become green fingers, as it comes with a ‘Mud & Bloom’ seed pack to take home and grow.

Guests, whether staying in-house or visiting for tea, are encouraged to visit the hotel’s third-floor Bee Terrace, where they can watch 450,000+ Buckfast honey bees hard at work making honey – some of which finds its way to the hotel’s kitchens.
