My Mum and I visited when she was here from Ireland and brought my two young daughters with us. Mum wanted them to have their first formal tea outing. Southern Gardens was the perfect place. They are so good to children. I found out that the two ladies there have all grandsons and love having little girls visit for tea! They had a small table next to ours, an antique pram full of hats and gloves and crowns and the girls were fussed over enough to feel like two daughters of the Royal House!
