Nestled in subtropical gardens, Reid’s Palace on Madeira offers the ultimate afternoon tea experience. This half-day trip will take you from your ship at Funchal and along the west coast, before finishing at Reid’s for a top culinary treat. You’ll work up an appetite by visiting Cabo Girão, the highest sea cliff in Europe that comes with jaw-dropping views of Funchal. From here you’ll head to Câmara de Lobos, a picturesque fishing village, which Winston Churchill once painted during a Madeira holiday. Finally, you’ll arrive at Reid’s Palace, where you’ll sit down to delicate finger sandwiches, buttered scones and intricate cakes, served with tea. Just so you know, there’s a dress code here, so make sure you put on something smart for your visit.
