Not what I expected
28 October 2019
This was a viewing of sketches ( not paintings) rather than looking at the palace. It was not made clear you had to book the afternoon tea separately and take two vouchers as the experience was sold as a package. We therefore arrived after our allotted palace time to have tea and were told we didn’t have a booking. The staff were super and squeezed us in and the setting and tea itself was wonderful.

Lovely way to learn about Leonardo da Vinci - Royal Family fans may wish to visit the state rooms instead but this was very interesting and informative for art lovers

Everything about afternoon tea at Ruben's was excellent. We received a warm welcome and chose from a wide range of teas. The sandwiches were delicious as were the scones and stunning cake selection. We had a wonderful time that we will remember for some time.
