Take afternoon tea in London s Mayfair. Tea
is served either in the hotel`s Palm Court, an Art Deco style elegant lounge area, or (from August 2015, while the Palm Court is refurbished), head to the sumptuous Tudor Room, located past the Silver Gallery, via the ballroom entrance. With something to suit everyone`s tastes, you can choose from the venue`s wide selection of loose traditional, herbal and oriental teas. To accompany, a variety of delicately prepared finger sandwiches with an assortment of fillings and breads is served, alongside scones with clotted cream and seasonal preserves, and an indulgent melody of French pastries. With the hotel only a short walk from Buckingham Palace, you can be assured you`re dining in total style.
This safari of the largest rewilding project in
lowland Britain is any nature lover`s dream! During the trip, spot large herbivores such as red and fallow deer roaming their natural habitat, and keep a look out for a range of beautiful bird species. Insects and wildflowers are abundant during spring, while summer brings with it a plethora of butterflies and moths. Trail cameras give guests the chance to get a special insight into more secretive creatures such as foxes, weasels and stoats, while feeding stations provide a chance to spot rare red kites, buzzards and ravens. Finally, stop for tea or coffee and organic homemade cake high up in a spectacular tree platform, offering panoramic views and close-ups of life in the canopy and below.
