CELEBRATE HAMPTON COURT FLOWER SHOW WITH A BOTANICAL AFTERNOON TEA AND TICKET PACKAGE AT HAWKERS BAR AND BRASSERIE
RHS Hampton Court Palace Show (4 th – 9 th July) is one of the big dates on every horticulturalist’s calendar and local restaurant Hawkers Bar & Brasserie is inviting green-fingered guests to celebrate with an exclusive flower show package. As well as receiving two tickets to the flower show, be treated to an afternoon tea with sweet treats inspired by the show’s beautiful botanicals.
Head chef Darren Edwards has curated a menu to reflect a refined afternoon at Hampton Court. Highlights include an artistic array of desserts, from champagne jelly with rosewater foam, to a raspberry mille-feuille bursting with English berries as well as decadent smoked salmon sandwiches with lemon cream cheese and cucumber and homemade scones with clotted cream and jam.
A themed cocktail, An English Garden, will also be expertly mixed and muddled to match; with Sipsmith Gin flavoured with apple, lemon, peach and viola flowers.
Priced at £85 for afternoon tea for two plus two passes to RHS Hampton Court Palace Show, or add a blissful overnight stay in the newly-opened Doubletree By Hilton London Kingston-Upon- Thames for £225 inclusive*.
Set in the heart of nearby Kingston, just 35-minutes by boat and 10-minutes by road to Hampton Court Palace, the hotel and restaurant is the ideal place to kick back and relax after a long day exploring the show.
