Waterfront Auckland presents ‘The Best of British’

Waterfront Auckland presents ‘The Best of British’ this Queen’s Birthday weekend

Waterfront Auckland is excited to announce a very special free community event taking place this Queen’s Birthday weekend at Queen’s Wharf – ‘The Best of British’.

From June 1st – 3rd, spend the day at Queen’s Wharf and discover the very best of England, Scotland and Wales. Guests are invited to toast Her Royal Highness over a High Tea, dabble in a round of croquet or badminton, and dine on a veritable mix of the finest British cuisine, from cucumber sandwiches to shortbread.

For families staying in Auckland this Queen’s Birthday, there’s no better place to while away an Autumnal day. From High Tea to free children’s workshops, the three-day weekend will be a celebration of all things British.

Peruse the British Car display, catch a free family movie including the original ‘Alice in Wonderland’ complete with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, or take part in a variety of quintessential British games for the whole family – kids will love learning the ins and outs of classic games such as lawn balls or croquet!

If it’s British, you’ll find it on Queen’s Wharf this Queen’s Birthday Weekend!
