To our loyal customers, fans and followers.

With the recent government announcements, you must be wondering what this means for your Potion Room booking.

We have been so looking forward to welcoming you back to the Potion Room, we hoped by now we would be in a better position to do so but we cannot go ahead with our events unless we are in Tier 2 or lower. We have made the sad but necessary decision to postpone The Potion Room for a second time. This will cover all dates in January until the end of June.

We are offering Potion Room gift vouchers to everyone affected by this. Gift vouchers are valid for 2 years and we will be hosting an exciting new Wizarding themed afternoon tea following the Potion Room. Your voucher will be valid for this as well. 

You will be contacted shortly regarding next steps.

As a small family run business we appreciate all your support as this enables us to be able to support our staff during these uncertain times. We appreciate you all very much. Hoping you all stay well and safe and look forward to seeing you when this is all over! Lots of Love, Annabel & Emily (Founders).




For when things are back to normal...

It was so much fun, the Potion's Professor was hilarious. Very interactive, and the food was delicious too!

Plan Your Visit

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your Potion Room booking time. If you are late (regardless of the reason and regardless if you have called ahead) you will not be guaranteed entry to the Potion Room experience as this will affect the enjoyment of the other Potion Room students.

The Potion room is located at our Soho cafe,  20 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 0SJ

Our themed afternoon tea is easily accessible through the London Underground - we’re near Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus underground stations, just a 10 minute and 5 minute walk respectively. Our super convenient location means you can just turn up and enjoy your amazing experience!

Please Note

The Potion Room is for ages 8+ and under 18's must be attending with an adult.

The Date and Time of your sitting cannot be changed once booked.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-amendable.

Due to the classroom style layout of the Potion Room (tables of 2s), you may not be seated right next to each other but you will be sat in very close proximity to each other.

Leslie lazuli

A middle-aged Potions Professor of 150 years from the dizzy heights of Essex. She is a big fan of whizz, bang and fun.

Her favourite potion is the Love Potion, because she is yet to find the one for her.

"Wands at the ready students!"

Professor Engelbert Slaptyback

Professor Engelbert Slaptyback is the wizard you all hope will be teaching your session.

He’s the more relaxed wizard, but requires your full concentration, pass any notes around the class and he’ll have no problem asking you to read it out loud!

He longs to own a copy of the Illumination Book Of Feelings... maybe one day he’ll order one!

In 2016 we launched the first Sanrio official Hello Kitty Afternoon tea in London. We immersed our customers in a unique and quirky experience based around Hello Kitty having high tea in London. The room was themed in Hello Kitty’s garden. Our menu was inspired by what Kitty loved to eat, apple pie mousse with a bow and chocolate mud pie! We heart Hello Kitty!

This experience is no longer available.

Genies cave

We launched Genie’s Cave in 2017. We were voted one of the best afternoon teas in London. The Disney themed afternoon tea was inspired by the book Aladdin and the cave of wonders which made this experience great for children. We created jewelled scones, genie macarons, jewelled cakes all served on gold tables, with gold cutlery and china. Tea was poured from gold genie lamps to complete the experience.

The Genies Cave is no longer available.
