Children are welcome to come along to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with the choice of their very own afternoon tea, with sandwiches, healthy snacks and tasty treats, plus a fruit juice. They can also decorate their own crown.

Guests can upgrade their Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea with a mini bottle of Prosecco, perfect for making a toast to the longest reigning monarch in British history.
