The journey to the Red Planet has become one of the great challenges of our time. In a ground-breaking new exhibition at The Design Museum, which opens on 16th October, discover how every detail in this extraordinary endeavour must be designed. Learn how a Mars colony might evolve, from the spaceships to be used for the eight-month journey to the habitats that people will live in.
The Afternoon Tea at The Milestone Hotel & Residences, opposite Kensington Palace, will turn into a space-themed experience to coincide with the ‘Moving to Mars’ exhibtiion, starting from the 18th October until the 24th November, 2019.
You’ll enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea in the stunning Cheneston's restaurant, with a delicate array of finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of space-themed pastries.
