Full description
Meet your guide at the meeting point and walk to the iconic Kensington Palace. On a guided tour of the palace’s gardens, walk around the immaculately-maintained grounds where you will be given interesting insights into the history of the royal family and Britain's most beloved drink: tea. 

Kensington Palace is most well known for being home to members of the British royal family like Princess Diana, Prince Harry, and now Prince William and Kate Middleton (along with Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte). See the famous Sunken Garden before ending the walk with an indulgent high tea in the breathtaking surroundings of Kensington Palace Pavilion.

You will be served a selection of afternoon tea sandwiches which include classics such as egg mayonnaise and cress, smoked salmon and cream cheese, roast ham and English mustard, and cucumber and fresh mint. Taste traditional scones made with Welsh butter filled with cream and jam and a selection of fine afternoon tea cakes.
