Indulge in the most sumptuous afternoon tea on the Colonnades.


With the long view of the Colonnades, the Queen’s House to your left and the Water Gates to your right, it is surely hard to imagine a more perfect setting for afternoon tea.

For selected Sundays only this summer, indulge in the most sumptuous afternoon tea offering a selection of delicate finger sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of cakes and sweet treats. A wide selection of teas are available and delicious milkshakes for children; alternatively turn tea into a real celebration with chilled Prosecco or Champagne.

Special Jubilee Afternoon Teas will take place on Saturday 4th June & Sunday 5th June 2022 to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Tea will be served throughout the afternoon from midday onwards. As part of your visit to the Old Royal Naval College, take the opportunity to purchase an annual pass to visit the Painted Hall, the Chapel or to take an architectural or film tour with one of our experienced guides.
