My friend Corinne and I took two of our granddaughters for tea at The Grand. They had a brilliant time and enjoyed ever minute of it.
The scones are the best bit as they are warm and you get gorgeous clotted cream with them. Corinne and the girls had never been to The Grand before and they were very impressed. It is a lovely old building with so much character, if only the walls could talk as so many famous people and royalty have stayed here. In 1909 it opened the very first sprung dance floor in Europe and the King and Queen were the first to dance on it.
It really is worth taking the tour on a Friday at 2pm and seeing it all in its splendor. For only £7.75 you not only get a full tour but also a cream tea!
