Indulge in a day of royal luxury with this gift voucher for two. Treat yourself and a friend to a sumptuous Champagne Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason and enjoy a visit to Buckingham Palace State Rooms.
The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open for viewing to the general public for 8 weeks in August and September, and you and a friend can walk amongst the opulence of the official home of the British Monarchy on this Visit to Buckingham Palace and Champagne Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason for Two.
The official London Residence of the Royal Family since 1837, Buckingham Palace has 19 regal State Rooms including the Throne Room (where on special occasions the Queen receives loyal addresses), the grand White Drawing Room and more, where the Queen and other members of the Royal Family gather prior to official occasions. Visitors can also see the Picture Gallery, where an ever-changing display of some of the greatest paintings from the Royal Collection is hung, currently featuring works by Rembrandt, Titian, Van Dyck and Rubens.
Continuing the royal theme, a Champagne Afternoon Tea awaits for you and your guest at an elegant restaurant opened by HM The Queen - Fortnum & Mason's iconic Tea Salon. Enjoy sweet and savoury delights, listen to Fortnum's expert 'tearistas' as they take you on a guided tour of exceptional teas, and round the whole experience off with a little Champagne, for true teatime decadence.
