The picnic experience was great, we sat on HM's terrace to eat the picnic. The quality of the picnic from the Rubens at the palace was one of the best. Selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones (Jam and Cream). This should not be confused with the scone offering from the vendor in the garden, which has come in for some adverse comments. The picnic tea was so good we have booked to go to Rubens for a tea there. The experience was a 60th birthday present for my wife, she was over the moon with the whole event. Would definitely do it again.
If you are looking for a quiet day in gorgeous surroundings, then this is for you. As expected,the grounds of the Palace are beautiful - mostly trees and shrubs rather than flowers. The Guides are knowledgeable and friendly. Seating is plentiful. Toilet facilities are luxurious. There are places to buy refreshments but we opted for the Rubens Afternoon Tea package. The tea was nice but a bit of a pain to carry around. My only grumble about the day was the Gift Shop ... prices are a little eye watering!
Very well organised experience. David our guide, gave very interesting facts along the way especially about Oliver Cromwell which I didn’t know. Sitting down to High Tea was very enjoyable with the group and hearing more interesting facts from David.
Really enjoyed this cruise the afternoon tea was lovely and it was nice to sit upstairs on the boat afterwards. The guide was really good 10/10, highly recommended.
Great day, very good tour guide and a fantastic driver. Making a great experience. Very enjoyable.
