Fit for a queen…

Co-founder of Pickering - Polly Taylor

To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s staggering 70 years on the throne there will be plenty of special events and activities taking place across the UK and the Commonwealth – both official and unofficial.

The celebratory extended bank holiday weekend runs from Thursday June 2 to Sunday June 5 and in addition to events such as Trooping the Colour and the Platinum Party at the Palace, there will also be thousands of street parties, special afternoon teas and picnics happening to toast her majesty’s reign.

Locally two venues are pulling out all the stops to ensure the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is one you’ll never forget

At One Warwick Park Hotel from June 1 to 5 you can indulge in a Platinum Jubilee afternoon tea in order to mark the longest reigning monarch in the history of the UK.

In addition to its traditional offering (£25 per person) you can upgrade to a Prosecco afternoon tea (£28.50) or a Champagne one (£28.50) which includes a glass of Louis Roederer Brut. Each one offers a selection of home baked sultana scones, freshly cut finger sandwiches and assorted homemade seasonal sweet treats. The four star hotel located just by The Pantiles is also offering a Children’s Afternoon Tea priced £12.50 per person.

Over at Salomons Estate there will be a fantastic family and friends picnic on June 4. Running from midday to 4pm guests are invited to enjoy a delicious picnic prepared by the chef and his team on arrival at the 36-acre-estate on Broomhill Road. There will also be a bar on the terrace serving refreshments all day at the ticketed event and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained including table tennis, scavenger hunt, table football and lawn games. 

Adult picnics cost £19.50 per person while children’s ones are priced at £10.50 per child. There will be a limited number of picnic benches available but visitors are also advised to bring their own picnic blanket so they can sit upon the lawns. They are also advised to dress according to the weather forecast for that day.

Entry is only permitted with the purchase of a picnic for each guest attending and confirmation of booking will need to be shown upon arrival. Guests are not permitted to bring their own food or drink on site.
