What about Afternoon Tea for children?

The thing with afternoon tea is that it’s very much geared up to accommodate the grown ups. Now I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. But it did mean I had to work extra hard to find something that would accommodate all 3 of us.

Red Letter Days definitely came up tops though with an extra special treat that the whole family can enjoy over at The Rubens in Westminster, London. It’s unusual to find something that not only accommodates kids, but actually makes a big fuss of them too.




Family Royal Afternoon Tea at The Rubens with Red Letter Days

This afternoon tea is a bit of a special one. It’s designed for a family of 2 adults and 2 under 12 year olds. The location, which overlooks the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace is stunning. Making the perfect place to host a royal afternoon tea inspired by Her Majesty the Queen’s, the House of Stuart, Prince William and Prince Harry.


We can’t wait to try the Family Royal afternoon tea at The Rubens in London. I’ll be back to share all the the tasty details soon.



Have you tried anything like Red Letter Days before? What did you think?

    Oo I love afternoon tea so much, but never thought of taking my daughters for one too. That’s such a nice idea 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear how you get on! I love a good afternoon tea, it’s always such a treat – the scones are my favourite 🙂 I’d love to know how they’ve geared it up for children, as I don’t go anywhere near as often as I’d like these days. To be able to take the children would make it so much easier!

    I love Afternoon Tea. I wish there was somewhere that did it near us. I’m trying to find out if I can do a child-friendly one when I return to the UK in October.

    Oh i love afternoon tea! I do prefer it without my kiddies though lol! I can eat the cakes slowly and not scoff them before my kids eat mind too! We have used red letter days a few years as a gift for a hotel and theatre package. It was so good.

    Those little cakes look so cute. I love an afternoon tea and so do my little ladies. I haven’t tried red letter days before but I may have to for some up coming birthdays.
