Afternoon Tea in London

I do love a little jaunt, although I love working from home it’s nice to get out and meet people. Last week I was invited to London for afternoon tea. It might seem like a long way to go for afternoon tea, but this was a little bit special and well worth a ten hour round trip on the train.

I set out at 6am and was quickly whizzing through the snow covered North of England. By midday I was at King’s Cross meeting up with my good pal Laura. We made our way towards Royal Horseguards Hotel. Not being Londoners we ended up on a tube heading the wrong way, our error was soon rectified amid lots of giggling.

At the hotel we were greeted by our lovely hosts from Royal Carribean International. We also met up with the rest of our group – Tara, Karin, Liz and Becky.

After the presentation from the ladies at Royal Carribean I was left wondering why I’d never considered a cruise before. Ok there’s the cost, but that seems to be comparable with a holiday to Florida. I guess there’s the safety and low level fear of sailing, but I’m told once you try it these fears are often unfounded. I do love the idea of showing Erin a bit more of the world if I can and cruising is an easy way to do that. With my interest piqued I agreed to become a #RoyalMum and find out more.

My first experience of afternoon tea was excellent, as you’d expect from a five star hotel. I got my cucumber sandwiches, we also had fresh scones and panna cotta, and little cakes. All very delicious.

After a very exciting lunch a few of us took stock of the day over a drink before we headed back to the train station. I was absolutely shattered by the time I got home, but it was well worth it. You can’t beat a good catch up with friends and I think that there might be some exciting opportunities ahead as a #RoyalMum.

    I’d like to lodge a complaint. My face is obscured by a tall panna cotta.

    Apart from that, it was lovely to catch up and I’m looking forward to being convinced about cruising too!

  2. I agree that cruising seems like a great choice these days! Can’t wait to give it a go!!
