A Right Royal Affair in London 0  

Posted in Nightlife

As the excitement and press attention surrounding the imminent arrival of a new royal from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is building up this month, we thought it only proper to join in with the jollities. To mark the occasion, we’ve thought up 5 right royal ideas for trips, activities and excursions around the capital city, taking in historic royal palaces, majestic afternoon teas and posh picnics.

Kensington Palace

The birthplace and childhood home to Queen Victoria in the 1800s, Kensington Palace neighbours Hyde Park, close to High Street Kensington. Must-sees are the sunken garden, The King’s Staircase and The Queen’s State Apartments. Enjoy a magnificent afternoon tea in The Orangery, the elegant setting for Queen Anne’s courtly entertainment during the 18th century.

Hampton Court Palace

Set on the banks of the Thames, Hampton Court Palace is a sight to behold with stunning grounds, a large maze and The Great Hall, one of England’s last and greatest medieval halls. Celebrating its 500th anniversary this year, visit Henry VIII’s Kitchens for an authentic Tudor cookery experience.


Tower of London

Home to The Crown Jewels and 6 resident ravens, you can reach the Tower of London by walking across the iconic Tower Bridge. Sign up for an entertaining Yeoman Warder tour to fully immerse yourself in the history and discover the gruesome truth about the beheadings which took place there.

Buckingham Palace

in London is the Queen’s official residence, world-famous Buckingham Palace. Take a short stroll through Green Park and create some photo opportunities outside the grand gates. Don’t forget to catch the ‘changing of the guard’.

Picnic in the park

With a number of lush parks in and around London, take the chance while the sun’s shining to find your perfect spot, lay out a rug and spread out your wares. Pick up your lunch goodies from

the luxurious Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly, where the Queen is rumoured to shop. With hampers galore including fine wines, chutneys, exotic fruits, fresh breads, meats and cheeses, it’s the only

way to picnic properly.

Fortnum Web

Located close to Fortnum & Mason on Stratton Street is the 5 star May Fair Hotel. Not all hotels were created equal and you can expect more than a regal touch when you stay here by sinking into a king or queen sized bed in one of our splendidly luxurious bedrooms. Partake in an afternoon tea fit for a king (or queen) in the May Fair Bar, with a delicious assortment of sandwiches, cakes, pastries, freshly baked scones and tea. First opened by King George V in 1927, we can’t think of a more decadent way to spend your stay in London than in a hotel with such a rich history.
