Afternoon tea with an Italian twist at Baglioni Hotel, plus tickets to ‘Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up’
There aren’t many things finer in life than afternoon tea in a five-star hotel. But throw in free access to a sold-out exhibition presenting Frida Kahlo’s personal artefacts and clothing and you’ve got a practically perfect day out.
The afternoon tea at the Baglioni Hotel (beside Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens) touts an impressive menu with an inventive Italian influence. With today’s offer, you can tuck into their savouries and sweets and get access to ‘Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up’ for a bargain £42.50. Besides, this is the only way you’ll get to see this exhibition now, so don’t say we’re not good to you.
From our four-star review:
‘Frida Kahlo inspires devotion in a way exceptionally few people do. The V&A’s new exhibition of over 200 Frida-related items (many of which were only re-discovered in 2004 when a room sealed by Kahlo’s husband, Diego Rivera, was opened) goes some way to explaining the allure underpinning Frida fandom.’
