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.

I took my mum here for her birthday and the entire experience was great. They'd made a note that it was her birthday so we were greeted at the door of the Palm Court with wishes of Happy Birthday. The room itself is grand and there was a live pianist which adds to the entire experience. We had the Bijoux... More

Had a fabulous afternoon tea with lovely, friendly service with champagne and a complimentary lemon posset. Sandwiches were fresh and very appetising. The patisserie exquisite and what gorgeous surroundings. This is probably our 7th visit to the Langham and it certainly won't be our last. Thank you for making my mum's birthday so special.

Great meal--lovely service. We were tired and anxious to eat and get to bed, it was our first night. The staff were lovely. It was a bit expensive, but then most everything in London is!

As we were staying at the hotel we booked afternoon tea. This is one of the best we've had in London. We opted for the Bijoux tea with a half bottle of champagne, £135 for two. Admittedly not cheap but the rolls were really, really nice. Scones served warm, dessert both pretty and flavoursome. They have a pianist playing, which... More

For 4 mornings consecutively, ate at the Palm Court as a guest in the hotel and was not bored at all. Unlike some hotels where you decide to explore outside after day 2, i actually looked forward to having breakfast. Good variety and excellent service!

Attentive service, excellent food, fabulous music, with no rush to leave your table. Pricing allow £75 per head if you are staying a few hours to listen to the music.
