Queen’s Gallery and Afternoon Tea for Two
what a treat!
The First Georgians exhibition was first class with a brilliant free audio guide. The Hilton was 10 minutes walk away: quite substantial tea and beautifully presented with fresh flowers.

Afternoon of treasures
The exhibition at The Queen's Gallery was an opportunity to see some of the artwork, furniture and treasures belonging to the royal family. The 'First Georgians' gave us an insightful lesson in history in an easy to understand way. A detailed audio commentary satisfied our need for understanding the changes brought about by King George I and subsequent heirs. The furniture was breathtakingly sumptuous and the rooms led one into another each showing us a different collection: tables, chairs, a rock crystal clock, miniatures, china, silver gilt table ware, battle plans, Hogarth's take on life and so on. The exhibition was followed by a walk to a hotel and a delightful afternoon tea. We ate delicate sandwiches, scones and cream, and cakes and macaroons. Absolutely the perfect way to complete our afternoon.

Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition of 16th & 17th century royal costumes in the Queens Gallery and then afternoon tea at the Hilton by Victoria. Something we would not have booked and done ourselves.
