Teddy the Shetland, Britain’s favorite pony, will be vacationing at The Goring this August.

The Goring

The Goring is a luxury five-star hotel in the heart of Belgravia. Being so close to Buckingham Palace and some of the city’s best shops, theaters and galleries, The Goring offers guests a unique way to experience what London has to offer. The iconic hotel was granted a Royal Warrant of appointment to HM The Queen for Hospitality Services.


In 2016, the hotel Dining Room was awarded its first Michelin Star. This summer, The Goring will host the Instagram sensation, Teddy the Shetland Pony, offering travelers yet another reason to stay at the family owned hotel.

Teddy’s Visit

Teddy is part of the Goring family, owned by the hotel CEO’s cousins Alice and Molly Goring, so it is only natural that he pays a visit to the family run hotel. His warm welcome will begin on August 16th and his stay will last through August 31st

On property, Teddy will stay in a beautiful stable right in The Goring’s garden, London’s largest private hotel garden. Here, he will be able to roam free and visit guests enjoying afternoon tea in the garden. 

Themed Afternoon Tea

During Teddy’s stay, visitors will have the opportunity to meet the adorable ‘pony in residence’ and celebrate the guest of honor at Teddy the Shetland Afternoon Tea. The Goring has always provided visitors with exceptional afternoon teas, so these limited edition bookings are sure to please. 

The afternoon teas will include delightfully creative cakes in the shape of ponies and horseshoes, and other festive treats. The Goring will also have carrot cake on the menu to pay homage to Teddy’s favorite snack

Guests can opt to enjoy their themed afternoon tea in The Goring’s garden on a picnic rug for an up close visit with the furry celebrity. Or, reservations can be made for the terrace which offers a more formal dining experience. Either way, guests will surely have a one of a kind afternoon tea.
