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.

The decor is superb, very elegant and art deco + someone was playing piano and it was just lovely. We first had the sandwich which were all very nice, they also paid attention to our dietary requirement (no meat) which was really nice.The only thing which annoyed me is that we have been asked to leave after a certain time....

Very attentive staff, beautiful surroundings, pianist was lovely. There was no rush at all, we were offered plenty of sandwiches, cakes and scones with copious amounts of tea and the obligatory glass of bubbles, not to be missed. Enjoy the afternoon tea experience, we did!!!!

I booked an afternoon tea for my partner and I, pre-Valentines day as we could not spend the 14th together. Wanting to pull out all the stops, I pre-booked our afternoon tea and received a great 10% discount off the price. I had specifically requested that my partner's sandwiches be made with no prawn and no mayonnaise (intolerances etc) however... More

Excellent service, sandwiches, cakes, all in a very pleasant surrounding. If you feel that you cannot eat all you a given ask for a doggy bag. It is well worth it just to see the unique design of the boxes

We were here last year with friends for the Easter afternoon tea. No wonder this place is where the tradition of afternoon tea originated. The selection of teas itself is probably the most impressive I've ever seen, it took us ages to decide. Having live music was also lovely and it added to the stunning Art Deco atmosphere of the...

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.
