Description: 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.

Escaping the rain we popped in for Tea late on a Saturday evening. The Palm Court is a throwback to the '30s but with a modern twist, we liked the look of the Oysters being enjoyed by a table close by but stuck to Fresh Mint tea with "home made" biscuits. Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 piece combo that entertained the... More

The Langham is the home of afternoon tea. Exquisite finger sandwiches, excellent scones, fabulous tasty cakes, excellent choice of teas with great service accompanied by fine, background piano playing in a wonderful art deco setting. Well worth the money for a special occasion.

We made reservations on-line in advance, very easy. The room was beautiful, the food excellent, and the staff attentive. It's quite expensive, but we were in London for our 20th anniversary, so a nice way to have a meal out with our two picky teen eaters. We were able to request veggie sandwiches only and they were very accommodating. The... More

I brought one of my best friends here for her 40th birthday. She had no idea where I had booked and was really blown away by the gorgeous hotel and Palm Court. The array of teas on offer was a little overwhelming but the staff were there to help and guide us as to which would be the best teas... More

Food was great found tables a bit disconcerting as they were mostly coffee style tables. Service was excellent though.

Tea in the Palm Court on Boxing Day (day after Christmas) has become a family tradition. The Singaporean pastry chef Cherie Finden, is legendary and always creates a spectacular centre piece. Last Christmas it was a vast train. Fantastic scones and pastries and an exotic selection of infusions. No reason to head for Mayfair or Knightsbridge for afternoon tea. The... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in London. Class, elegance, but smart people and not the protocol you find at the Ritz, with lots of tourists having teatime at 8pm or 12am. Proper english teatime at the right time. Live music, nice cakes and scones, very good sandwiches. The artesian bar is one of the coolest in Lndon. Please... More

We came here for an afternoon tea after a busy shopping trip nearby. The location of this place is very convenient. The afternoon tea was absolutely splendid. The wide range of teas on the menu made it difficult to choose! The sandwiches were delicious. The scones were lovely light and fluffy. The top tier of cakes were decorated extremely intricately....
