Nothing screams ‘queen’ like the British monarchy. Marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Britain’s most prominent royals, Queen Victoria, London’s Hotel Café Royal is offering a new tea service for Mother’s Day.
The new menu is inspired by savoury and sweet dishes from Victoria’s reign – there is even a dish inspired by her favourite scent: rose and lychee mousse with raspberry jam. Yes please.
Afternoon tea starts at £55 per person.
