Tour of Kensington Palace with Champagne Tea for Two
Culture, cake and champagne!
My friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a day out in London and chose this combination of culture and a champagne cream tea. Overall the trip worked out very well, the palace was fabulous - we learnt lots about the royals that lived there. A nice stroll across the gardens to the hotel for a champagne afternoon tea. The hotel, the Thistle Kensington Gardens was very welcoming, even if we were almost the only people in the restaurant! The champagne was good, the afternoon tea was slightly disappointing - we had to send the scones back as they were clearly old. The hotel was very busy with tourists coming and going and as it was open plan the ambience for an afternoon tea was not quite what we would have hoped for - we felt a bit like extras! A good value experience but think we'd pay the extra to have tea at the Orangery at the Palace next time..

Tour of Kensington Palace with Champagne Tea for T
Tour of the Palace was very interesting and informative but the
afternoon tea was disappointing. It was a good 2O mins walk from
the Palace and the hotel had no character and was very corporate
in apperance. It would have been much better if it had been in the
adjoining orangery as it would have been inkeeping with the experience of Kensington Palace. As this gift was for our 4Oth Wedding Anniversay it was nowhere near as special as we had

Not worth £89
Kensington Palace was very interesting and the gardens are lovely. However Afternoon Tea is served in a small 3 star hotel above a petrol station with no view and is a 10 to 15 minute walk from Kensington Palace the tea was nice and staff good however no atmosphere.
