Ever dreamt of stepping into Willy Wonka’s whimsical world? Well, dream no more! Sopwell House in Hertfordshire is turning fantasy into reality with a treat-filled package inspired by the magical 2023 film. It’s time for a fantastical break that promises to tickle your taste buds and transport you to a world of weird and wonderful wonders.

Picture this: an overnight stay in a Mews Suite that’s practically a portal to Wonka’s chocolate factory. Some suites even come with feature fireplaces and cedar wood spa baths – talk about fancy! And yes, you get your very own purple robe because, let’s face it, you’re the Willy Wonka of your own adventure.

But wait, there’s more! Your suite comes stocked with an in-room mini bar loaded with exploding candy, fizzy drinks, and chocolate bars galore. It’s a playground for your inner child, and the fun has just begun.

Prepare to be surprised at every turn with a Wonka-themed afternoon tea that’s not your average tea party. We’re talking tower-high finger sandwiches and pastries with a twist that will make your taste buds dance. From Milk Chocolate & Hazelnut Slice with popping candy to a Chocolate Lollypop that’s almost too cute to eat – it’s a feast fit for a candy king or queen. And did we mention the Forbidden Bubbly Cocktail? Orange juice, Grand Marnier, and prosecco poured over candy floss in a glass – now that’s a sip of pure magic!

As if that’s not enough excitement, the Wonka movie, filmed in the charming St Albans, is hitting the screens with Timothée Chalamet leading the cast. So, while you’re living your Wonka dreams at Sopwell House, catch the movie magic too.

Ready for your Wonka escape? Sopwell House’s Wonka Themed Escape is happening from December 8th to January 31st, starting at £440 per person. This includes afternoon tea, cocktails, purple robes, and in-room delights. Book your ticket to Wonka-land at www.sopwellhouse.co.uk, and get ready for a sweet escape like no other!
