Let your regal side shine with your closest friends and family and join us in the Walled Garden to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty, King Charles III.

While you can't have afternoon tea inside Buckingham Palace, you can enjoy this traditional English pastime with a royal twist in the heritage setting of The Walled Garden, Helen's Bay.

On arrival you will be welcomed with a Coronation cocktail. After a guided tour of the garden, you will enjoy a lavish selection of dainty sandwiches, irresistible miniature cakes, traybakes and scones, all served in pretty vintage china, on linen tablecloths bedecked with bunting and flowers for that added touch of nostalgia. This will be an afternoon to remember.

Things to note

Children can attend with a paying adult however there is no concession price.
This experience will be held outdoors,– both in the garden and undercover in our heavy-duty Bedouin marquee.
Please dress for warmth and comfort as dictated by the weather not forgetting to wear your tiara, crown or top hat.
