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.

My husband and I visited Palm Court at The Langham hotel with friends for afternoon tea. What a wonderful experience. We were very impressed by the grandeur of the hotel and found the wheelchair access to be very good (the staff even "valet parked" my chair for me!). There was a huge selection of teas to choose from, some of... More

We stopped here at 1.30 for afternoon tea in the middle of a shopping day. From start to finish was a really wonderful experience. All the staff were quietly cheerful and helpful. I asked for help with the selection of teas and was given recommendations. The food was lovely and there was plenty of it, I had worried that a... More

A special treat for us, while staying in London, before going to the theatre. It was a wonderful experience for us from the sumptuous décor, the attentive staff, the pleasant music being played by the pianist in the background and the delectable food. The sandwiches and scones were so fresh and light. The specially decorated cakes were a delight. The... More

I met friends for drinks here, and we ended up ordering some items from the bar menu. The setting is lovely and the service is excellent. We had hummus and spring rolls and sushi. I do not eat sushi, but thoroughly enjoyed the other items

The decor in Palm Court at the Langham is truly sumptuous! The sandwiches and scones were amazing - as you'd expect from the birthplace of Afternoon Tea. The choice of teas was really good and the staff were very attentive. They made a nice fuss of our Godmother who was celebrating a big birthday - even bringing out a plate... More

A wonderful place to celebrate my mother'r 80th birthday. The elegant surroundings and evocative piano played live in the background all contributed in making this a memorable visit. Staff were attentive and the food was beautifully presented. Will certainly visit again.

Popped in for a drink before dinner at The Landau. Nice table, comfortable, right by jazz quartet. Two Langham Teas, one glass of wine and a beer, all for about £45. Bargain. Five star luxury. Then the nibbles were brought out. Even more of a bargain. Remember to let your tea brew for five minutes, don't let them pour it... 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.
