Afternoon Tea

Last weekend when my mum was here we had afternoon tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace, fancy!
It's a really beautiful place, the white decorated walls and ceiling are amazing!
On the table there was a small orange tree.
This is what came with the tea; small sandwiches, scones and fabulous little cakes on top!
We ordered one of each tea "menu" so we got to try all the cakes...
But my absolute favourite was actually the scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam, divine!

I'm so jealous! I never got to visit Kensington Palace during my studies in London. There used to be an English tea room here, but they closed. :( Glad you had such a wonderful time!
