The East India Company Edit: Celebrate The Coronation In Style

Apr 10 , 2023

We're back with the second edition of The East India Company Edit – a round-up of the best we’ve seen, heard or can recommend on our travels…from our pioneering, adventurous spirit straight to your inbox.  

This week, we share our tips on how to celebrate the upcoming Coronation, from the luxurious to the delicious. Beyond the launch of our special edition The Coronation KCIII Loose Leaf Black Tea 70g Caddy, we've got a number of exciting tips to celebrate in style.  

If you'll be in town, Flemings Mayfair is just a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace and is now offering our Coronation Blend Tea as a part of their newly launched Royal Afternoon Tea service.

Don’t miss the family-friendly Mayfair Coronation Party which will see Grosvenor Square transformed into an enchanting garden wonderland to mark the crowning of King Charles III.

With many London attractions closed for the day of the Coronation, you may want to visit the exception – Hampton Court Palace.  Although the Palace is closed on 6th May, its gardens will remain open so grab a picnic and enjoy the lush surroundings.

Alternatively, to be nearer to the action, head to one of the Royal Parks. St James’s Park and Green Park may be crowded, but Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are much more spacious. Looking for a hamper worthy of a royal event? Our Great British Gourmet Food Hamper boasts an array of indulgences suitable for the most special of picnics.

Planning to host a viewing party at home? Why not try cooking the Royal Quiche for your guests? Filled with spinach, broad beans and tarragon, we recommend pairing it with our Chilli Jelly for a spicy and sweet twist.

Looking for the perfect mixer? Our Orange Blossom Cordial is a zingy spring refreshment. For a more grown-up tipple, nothing says celebration finer than a classic G&T with our very own The East India Company London Dry Gin.
