Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The CaledonianPrinces Street, Edinburgh, , EH1 2AB

With its origins as a railway hotel, The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian, first began its reputation as a venue for the rich and famous and locals alike in 1903. With a guest list reading like a who's who of the silver screen, the original hotel played host to Hollywood stars from Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and Elizabeth Taylor, to Bing Crosby and Sir Sean Connery.

Inspired by the grand social promenade that connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels, Peacock Alley transpires grace, elegance and sophistication. Here is to be found the essence of the unique and unforgettable Waldorf Astoria experience. "A Place To See And Be Seen"

Accompanied by the live performance of our harpist, you will enjoy an Afternoon Tea to remember in this iconic location which exudes the glamour and traditions of the original Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Peacock Alley's Afternoon Tea showcases decadent sweets, savoury freshly cut finger sandwiches, our homemade selection of scones and over thirty fine loose leaf teas and herbal infusions to choose from.
