The Orangery (Kensington Palace)Set in the perfectly manicured grounds of historic Kensington Palace, The Orangery offers an idyllic setting for afternoon tea for those who want tranquility and breathtaking views. A great way to enjoy the refreshments on offer here is to first work up an appetite with a stroll through picturesque gardens open to the public and once a favoured retreat of Diana, Princess of Wales. When you're ready to relax and quench your thirst, head for the gleam of starched white linen glistening through the Orangery's spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows. Once inside shadowed by graceful Corinthian columns and sweeping arches and rows of orange trees in urns enjoy a traditional afternoon tea complete with strawberries and cream. Built for Queen Anne in 1704, this royal retreat was used to house plants in the winter and became affectionately referred to as the Greenhouse. In the summer it became the venue for glittering court entertainments. No longer the exclusive domain of aristocrats and royals, the Orangery warmly welcomes all diners, proud of its historic building and glorious surrounds. Take a stroll, sup some tea and munch some scones just don't drop the jam on the floor.
