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.

Amongst the very best afternoon teas in London

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... read more

Consistently great afternoon tea. Never fails to deliver. Not cheap, but well worth. Always feel like a Princess when I'm here. Fantastic selection of teas, unlimited sandwiches and beautiful cakes. Atmosphere makes the occasion.

Even without a reservation, you might be able to enjoy an afternoon tea at the Palm Court. We were lucky enough to get one of the small tables on the side of the restaurant which are more secluded and private than the main dining room. Only downside is that the piano is quite far away, so you don't hear much... More

We called in on Saturday evening for a drink at the Langham Hotel. We chose the Palm Court to have a cocktail or two as it was less busy and noisy than the Artesian bar. A really good Jazz trio played for about 45 minutes while we were there. It would have been nice if they had played for longer... More

This is one of my favourite venues for a special treat. While the venue is a little grand, they are welcoming, accommodating and thoughtful and the cocktails are some of the best on time. If you haven't booked in advance but want to treat yourself or a friend or just escape from the bustle of the west end, head for... More

Very disappointed with the afternoon tea. The sandwiches were stale and were made In the morning. The cakes were very decorative but unfortunately not fresh. I confirmed with the waiter if he had assam tea, but instead of bringing me this he brought me a mixture of assam and other teas which was very weak. although the service on the... More

I recently had an afternoon tea at Langham hotel over a business meeting and since then have already recommended this experience to several friends. The setting is fantastic and transports you to Dubai in the middle of the English winter - with all the palm trees, grand decor and delightful sandwiches and pastries. The staff were attentive but not intrusive... More

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.
