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.

Good for tea

We stayed at Langham and had breakfast here. The tables are low and the chairs are too high for having a comfortable breakfast. It is a very nicely and luxuriously located place. You can enjoy this place if you are going for tea or for having drinks. But absolutely not good for breakfast. The staff... read more

I found myself needing to waste 4 hours in London before catching the train back home. Instead of doing the usual shopping and making myself tired walking all over London I decided to make a reservation off the cuff at The Langham for Afternoon Tea. Table for 1 - doesn't sound good but I can honestly say the staff made... More

The Langham Palm Court is my favourite place in London for afternoon tea. We went between Christmas and New Year and were able to experience their festive tea, which was nice and had lots of special treats for the holidays. We've always had a great experience with impeccable service but the service wasn't quite up to Langham standards on this... More

We booked afternoon tea at The Langham Palm Court restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Firstly the staff at the Langham are what you would expect in such an establishment polite and courteous to their guests. However what I expected on this occasion in my mind did not live up to what was delivered and I have to say I... More

Best afternoon tea experience. Wish we had budgeted three hours instead of just two hours to savor the experience. It's pricey but you get what you pay for.

My family and I had afternoon tea at the Langham for my Mothers birthday the weekend gone and it was exactly the ticket we expected! From the moment we approached the hotel itself to when we were being seated, the staff were great! There was the usual wide selection of tea (as expected), delicious warm scones with cream and jam...

Had a lovely time spending a few hours having afternoon tea here. The service was great, the sandwiches were tasty and the scones were amazing! So light and delicious. The cakes looked like a work of art. Our two hours here went very fast. It is dear but for me as it was only for a special occasion the price... More

Booked the Palm as a wedding aniversary celebration and it was a delight, we were given the best seat in the house, right side of room in far corner gives a perfect view of everything going on and still cosy enough for the romantics. Jazz band were playing through the night which added more to the ambiance. The food was... More

We have visited the Palm Court on a number of occasions and it never disappoints us. This time we were slightly let down that there was only one choice for the afternoon tea. On previous visits there have been 3 different choices with differing prices. Our favourite of all was the Asprey. The sandwiches were delicious this time but on... 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.
