Brilliantly British: Celebrate the King’s Coronation in Royal Tunbridge Wells

ROYAL TABLE: Afternoon tea at Salomons Estate

There’s no place more fitting to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III than our Royal town of Tunbridge Wells, where award-winning hotel One Warwick Park and landmark heritage venue Salomons Estate will be hosting a series of events to toast His Majesty The King.

While celebrations at Buckingham Palace take place from May 6, when the new monarch will be crowned at Westminster Abbey, the two establishments that belong to the Elite Leisure Collection group of companies are extending the festivities and will commence their royal-themed affairs on May 1 until the extra bank holiday on May 8.



Salomons Estate, found in the heart of Tunbridge Wells countryside will be celebrating with afternoon tea parties, where families can enjoy beautifully presented and quintessentially British treats, inspired by the King’s favourite dishes and those served at his very own wedding.

While sitting overlooking far-reaching views of the 36-acre grounds, guests can sip on Pimm’s and indulge in sweet and savoury delights, like pheasant, bacon and sausage roll, lemon posset and strawberry and cream layered sponge.

There will be a menu for both adults (£28.50) and children (£18.50), who will also be able to enjoy biscuit decorating and crown crafts before heading out on to the lawn for a game of croquet and a royal treasure hunt.

Bookings can be made for Sunday 7 and Monday 8 on OpenTable.

If you can’t make those dates, sister venue One Warwick Park will be putting on a week’s worth of royal activities, including a live screening of the historic event on May 6.
