The centre piece of the five-star Langham, London hotel, the dazzling Palm Court is famed as the place where the tradition of afternoon tea was born over 140 years ago, an indulgence that lives on today. Through hand crafted iron gates, guests enter an enchanting wonderland of deep reds and purples, plush fabrics and glamorous surroundings. The aromas of tea leaves brewing intermingle and the Palm Court pianist will help create a relaxing ambience of serendipity. The afternoon tea devotee can celebrate this timeless ritual of beautiful cakes, miniature pastries, scones and delicate finger sandwiches with a few unique twists and over 30 blends of tea to choose from. Having already been awarded Tea Guild membership, The Palm Court is also very proud to announce that Palm Court's Afternoon Tea has been awarded Tea Guild's Top London Afternoon Tea 2010 Award, considered to be the Oscar of the tea world.

Afternoon tea was a birthday present and very nice it was too! The Langham is a lovely place. We have had afternoon tea at the Ritz before, which is much more formal and men have to wear ties and jackets etc. The Langham has a much more relaxed feel about it, which I liked. The sandwiches were lovely then we... More

I have enjoyed afternoon tea here in the past but now it all seems a bit past its sell-by date. The Palm Court looks as though it needs a jolly good spring-clean though it's nice to hear a decent live pianist. The service is fine, the food pretentious and ordinary. Everything looks spectacular but tastes of nothing in particular e.g.... More

We had gret afternoon teas before (Claridge's) and horible afternoon teas before (Claridge's, too) and some mediocre ones in-between. This was the best, in our opinion. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously, and even the kids liked it thanks to the kids' menu that as available, too. Expensive? Well, yes. Worth every penny? Well, yes.

Lovely place for a formal afternoon tea. The food was lovely and you can refill as much as you want. The staff were also very attentive. Overall though it was expensive at £47 each.

The visit was at the easter holiday, the atmosphere was amazing with life music. The staff were very welcoming and offer useful explaination about the Resturant history. It was interesting to learn that After Noon Tea tradition was introduced at this very Resturant for the first time in the 19th. century.

I went without a reservation and had the afternoon tea. The selection and quality of food was very good. The service was exemplary and very much one to return to.

The best sandwiches ever followed by lovely scones. To finish there are elaborate themed and over decorated pastries that have more style than taste. There is a splendid selection of teas with many offers made to try different varieties. The service is absolutely first class. The Palm Court is a very attractive room although strangely rather under lit. The piano... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
