Leave the busy streets of London behind as you descend downstairs into the potion class. Get cloaked up, and then take your seat at the school-style desks and await your Potions Master. They will have you whisking up potions and all manner of concoctions in no time. 

Prices start from £49.50 for adults, £39.50 for kids. We also offer VIP tickets. 

We also offer packages for hen parties, children’s parties and corporate day afternoon tea packages.

Amazingly attentive hosts. Attention to every detail. Fun, well-thought surprises and twists from start to finish!

During your 2 hour experience, you will be treated to a delicious sweet and savoury Afternoon Tea inspired by classic British flavours.

Combined with the drinkable and edible potions you will be creating, will ensure that you are bubbling to the brim by the time your class ends!

We cater for many dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan, and wheat-free, and our vegetarian menu is halal-friendly.

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

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.

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!

The Potion room gift shop

Potion Room is an experience inspired by the magical world of wizard and alchemy, and is not based on any specific story or character. All content within the experience is fictional and created by Cutter & Squidge, and not endorsed or affiliated in any way to Harry Potter or J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World and is not a Harry Potter Afternoon Tea.


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!

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.
