Your mother deserves nothing less than a first-class dining experience this Mothering Sunday. So why not take her aboard the SS Great Britain on March 19 and treat her to the life of a Victorian VIP? With a special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea experience in First Class.
There’s nothing like afternoon tea. Under any other circumstance, devouring a selection of sandwiches would not feel so sophisticated. But it’s become the ultimate British pastime. It’s also a great way to spend some time with your mother this Mother’s Day – the present all real mums want anyway is ‘time’ anyway, or so they say.
This Mother’s Day exclusive aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain just takes the occasion somewhere extra special. Situated in the ship’s First Class Dining Saloon, visitors will tuck into a delicious array of treats, including finger sandwiches, mini savouries, scones and macaroons. During voyages, the room would have been accessed by first-class passengers only – so it’s the perfect place to make someone special feel like a VIP this Mother’s Day.
The stunning Victorian dining room has been lovingly restored by the SS Great Britain Trust’s Interpretation team. Guests can choose between a 1pm and 3pm slot and must book their experience ahead of time. The Mother’s Day afternoon tea experience costs £39.95 per adult. After tea, guests will be free to stroll through the Victorian dockyard, explore the ship, and visit the Being Brunel Museum.
This is the first of several exclusive on-board afternoon tea experiences for SS Great Britain in 2023. Across the summer, several more will take place for you to truly indulge your high-class fantasies. After this, it will take place on May 7 – King Charles III’s Coronation weekend, when SS Great Britain will be celebrating the ship’s royal connections. The dates following that will be June 25, July 23, August 20 and September 24. To learn more head here.
