Edinburgh, Scotland (PRWEB) March 7, 2010
This Easter, younger guests visiting The Gleneagles® Hotel in Perthshire are likely to feel as though they have fallen down a rabbit hole as the Gleneagles' chefs toy with traditional afternoon tea to create a magical Mad Hatter's Tea Party to enjoy.
Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the special Gleneagles afternoon teas will be sure to set the children on a gastronomic adventure.
"Eat me": Beautifully-prepared yet suitably peculiar delicacies include Mad Hatter's Hat cake, Bread-and-Butterflies and jam tarts.
"Drink me": Meanwhile for the adults, Bar Manager, David Sinclair has created a delicious Queen of Hearts cocktail exclusively for the occasion.
The fun and games for the children don't stop there, as Gleneagles will also be hosting Alice's croquet session on the Gleneagles lawn, playing to the fun but nonsense White Rabbit's rules. Other activities will be guaranteed to ensure even the sleepiest dormouse will want to stay awake; from pass the teapot to stick the grin on the Cheshire cat.
Beyond Alice in Wonderland-inspired distractions this Easter holiday, Gleneagles creates a fantastic retreat for all, and is sure to provide one of the most memorable Easter breaks in Scotland. Surrounded by stunning countryside and offering breathtaking views from stylish rooms, Gleneagles features an array of activities for everyone from beginners to experts, including fishing, off road driving, golf lessons, clay pigeon shooting, and horse riding.
There is also falconry and the world's first gundog school, which gives guests the chance to work with highly trained Labradors and other breeds. The multi award-winning Spa by ESPA, which offers superb treatments for both men and women is the perfect way to unwind.
The Mad Hatter's Tea Party will take place on 11 April 2010, is priced at £10 per person and can be booked through the Playroom on 01764 694337. Afternoon tea gift vouchers are also available via the website.
