‘I don’t belong in this family,’ said my little daughter, ‘there are too many boys.’
‘I know exactly what you mean,’ I said, ‘lets run away and do something just for the girls.
So we did. We’d been very kindly invited to a Peter Pan Morning Tea by The Langham in Sydney’s Rocks.
This grand hotel is housed in a beautiful heritage building. It’s all 5-star opulence with lashings of old fashioned service and style.
Like its namesake in London, The Langham puts on a marvellous high tea. At The Langham this is known as a Tiffin Tea, and is served daily. You can have your tea leaves read at weekends there.
The children’s morning tea is a feature of each school holidays and it really is a treat.
Each children’s morning tea in school holidays has a different theme. We experienced the Peter Pan Morning Tea, with pirate themes for the food, then a reading from the famous book. The children each received a copy of Peter Pan to take home too.
But it’s not all about the children, look at this platter of tiny treats which yours truly scoffed, in a ladylike manner of course.

Costing $30 for children and $49 for adults, morning tea at the Langham is a terrific treat. It’s one that will fill you up, so no need for more meals on the day that you visit – a cost saving!
Many thanks to The Langham Sydney for hosting Minnie The Minx and I.
We very much enjoyed some mother and daughter time, and escaping from rugby-mad twin and great big hairy teenage brothers.
