The 17th century Queen’s House in Greenwich Park was the first fully Classical building seen in England and was commissioned by Anne of Denmark, wife of King James I. The King is said to have given the manor of Greenwich to his wife as way of an apology for swearing at her in public after she accidentally shot one of his dogs while hunting. Whatever the truth, Anne died before the house was completed and work was postponed. It was only when James I’s son, King Charles I gave Greenwich to his queen, Henrietta Maria that work on the structure reconvened.

From now until 28 September, guests can choose from a fine selection of aromatic Dammann Frères teas, including Earl Grey, Jasmin Green and Darjeeling, deliciously elegant finger sandwiches, including honey-glazed Wiltshire ham and red onion relish, and Scottish smoked salmon and soft cheese. There is also a mouth-wateringly indulgent selection of cakes, including macaroons, Bakewell slice and mini fruit scones, with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam.

Guests can also enhance their afternoon tea package with Prosecco and an expert’s curator tour to learn about the history of The Queen’s House and its outstanding art collection, which includes pieces by Gainsborough, Turner and Hogarth (visitors can also choose to see the collection for free if they want to wander round the house without the curator).
