Enjoy a celebration of Queen Victoria at Cliveden...

Cliveden was visited by Queen Victoria on many occasions. The House is only a short distance from Windsor, so she would sometimes travel here by boat. It was at Spring Cottage, Cliveden's luxury hideaway on the riverbank, that Queen Victoria and the Duchess of Sutherland would take afternoon tea whilst watching the world float by.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria, we could think of nothing more apt that an afternoon tea incorporating some of the things that she was known to love.

The menu includes nods to the Victoria sponge, which was named after her and would cater to her famous sweet tooth; Finnan haddie, which she was known to enjoy at breakfast in later years; curry, which she first enjoyed in 1887 and pronounced to be 'excellent'; and Atholl brose, a mixture of whisky and honey that she was known to have a penchant for. 

Join us to celebrate 24th - 26th of May for a perfectly prepared selection of finger sandwiches and savoury treats, freshly baked scones with home-made jam and clotted cream, miniature delectable bite-size cakes, pastries and delicacies, accompanied by full-bodied and aromatic Cliveden blend teas...
