The Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea: A Regal Affair

Complement your Private Tour with a spectacular Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea.

The magnificent Rotunda Bar is home to an experience inspired by the treasures housed at the Tower of London. 

For over 600 years, Kings and Queens of England have entrusted their crowns, robes, and ceremonial regalia to this historic landmark.

Now, it’s your turn to experience the Royal treatment, hosted by our friends at the Four Seasons Hotel!
