Afternoon Tea at The Orangery

If you are looking for a decadent way to spend an afternoon in London, look no further than High Tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace. While my aunt and uncle were visiting, we had a quintessentially British experience when we visited the famous institution.

Located just behind Kensington Palace and it’s manicured Gardens, The Orangery is a bright and airy restaurant that’s elegant yet relaxed.

We went for traditional Afternoon Tea and enjoyed all the perfectly prepared treats. The menu consisted of egg mayonnaise and cress bridge rolls, coronation chicken wraps, smoked salmon with cream cheese mini bagels and cucumber and fresh mint sandwiches along with orange-scented currant scones served with Cornish clotted cream and English strawberry jam. We also enjoyed an assortment of afternoon pastries and chose our beverage from a range of loose teas, tisanes or coffee.  All of this was served on The Orangery’s gorgeous china.

After you leisurely enjoy your High Tea, you can stroll around the Gardens hoping for a glimpse of Royalty. William was hoping to meet his future girlfriend, Princess Charlotte, but he had no luck. Maybe another day!
