Enjoy some well-deserved family fun in the capital this March

With both March and Easter just around the corner, London is the perfect destination for some early year family fun before the Easter celebrations start. Shake off your winter blues with a fun list of activities guaranteed to have the kids reeling with excitement.

Afternoon Tea at the Kensington Hotel

Afternoon Tea Landmarks

Start your trip off on a delicious note with some culinary treats. Taking inspiration from London’s most recognisable and iconic landmarks, The Kensington hotel is offering up its London Landmarks Afternoon Tea for the family to dine on within their Town House restaurant.

Located in one of West London’s most desirable areas and close to some of the city’s most important landmarks themselves, the menu will have a delectable choice of options to choose from their menu. – This makes no sense!
 
From scones, sandwiches and sweet treats, this afternoon tea will introduce a creative twist to the traditional presentation of high tea, as you enjoy a delicious selection of treats which will all come presented on a London Eye-inspired tea stand and pay homage to the city of London.

A day in London celebrating the city itself is the perfect place to start your weekend of fun.
