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.

Such a great place to celebrate a romantic occasion!

I have nothing but praise for Palm Court at The Langham. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. The waiting staff were so attentive, we even met Cherish, the Executive Pastry Chef. The sandwiches were plentiful and each tasted delicious, the warm scones were to die for, and the stunning pastry deserts... More

We had tea and cocktails in this restaurant when we were staying in London and the service was a bit slow but very accommodating.

A unique afternoon tea experience in a grand room with live music. The sandwiches were really tasty with interesting fillings, not the standard boring ones. The sweet treats are masterly created by executive chef Cherish Finden which are divine! Great selection of bespoke teas.

Visited here on Easter Sunday with my daughter and mother in law, whose birthday was that day she was 86 years young. Initially I was not going as I have a wheat allergy and did not realise they could cater for me, having read an earlier review I then booked a place too. The food was amazing I have never... More

We visited the Langham for afternoon tea as a group of 6 ladies. After enjoying Afternoon tea at a number of top Hotels in London we were extremely disappointed. Our table was not ready when we arrived, we were asked to wait in the lobby with nowhere to sit. The service wasn't great, apart from constantly being poured more tea.... More

I have been to many different afternoon teas in London, and this has to be the best! The entrance to the hotel is beautiful, and all of the hotel staff are very polite and friendly. Entering the Palm Court we were greeted by a very polite young man who showed us to our table. What I enjoyed about The Langham... 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.
