A Royal Visit - 07 September 2018

Today we marked the completion of the restoration of the Tea Rooms with a visit from the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay to Mackintosh at the Willow for the official opening. The Royal couple enjoyed their tour of the new Exhibition centre and of the fully restored Mackintosh designed Tea Rooms and we were delighted to welcome them and to receive such positive comments and feedback on their visit.

Celia Sinclair, Chair and Founder of the Willow Tea Rooms Trust and the visionary behind the whole restoration project, welcomed the Duke and Duchess and introduced some of team and the expert craftsmen and women involved. HRH Prince Charles put in place the final wood carving on the centrepiece baldacchino in the Front Saloon on the ground floor of the Tea Rooms, to mark the completion of the work.
