Britannia Hotel has a 150 year history of hosting special occasions, including Parisian fashion shows in Palmehaven, which would have visitors queueing around the block for the chance to get a peek at the latest cloths from London and Paris. Our Afternoon Tea on 3 November was in homage to these great events, in partnership with Carma and Høyer.
