However, you will have to be quick as the stay is only valid from 1st November 2018 until 31st January 2019, and starts at £540 per night, based on two people sharing a Classic Double Room.

When you arrive, young guests will be given a 'silver' chocolate tuppence with they can exchange for a bird-feeding kit.

Located in the heart of Kensington, the hotel also gives children the chance to fly a kite 'up to the highest height' in the Italian Garden at Kensington Palace.

They also have a children's version so that the young ones can still be involved, which includes kite-shaped biscuits covered in cherry ganache.

To top it off there are also Mary Poppins themed cocktails with one made from muddled raspberries, peach liqueur, peach purée, orange juice and ginger ale called A Little Nip from Every Sip

Or you can enjoy the mocktail version called the ...Most Delightful Way, served in a special medicine bottle.

Guests will also receive a red carnation buttonhole, just like Mr. Banks wore on his lapel in the original Disney film.

If you just want to do the afternoon tea without the stay, walk-in guests can also enjoy the sweet treats for £50 per person or £25 for a child under 12.

Mary Poppins Returns is released in cinemas on the 21st December 2018.
