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.

Gorgeous, spacious room with various seating options including sofas and low tables. The tea choices are extensive and the menu does a good job describing them.

Enjoyed a lavish afternoon tea with my husband at The Langham a few weeks ago. Comfortable seating, professional and welcoming staff, tasty sandwiches and cakes and fantastic live piano music. We thank you for the wonderful afternoon.

Loved Langhams, where we had a superb tasty afternoon tea, to celebrate my birthday. Really tasty finger sandwich's and rolls and, unlike some similar establishments, they are very happy to keep serving more if required. Delicious, warm scones to follow, and then a small selection of sweet things, again more available if you need them. Also presented with a little... More

I was given the gift of Afternoon Tea by colleagues as a thank you gift. I made my appointment and I did worry that as I was using a voucher I would not be treated as well but this was not the case. We were given a prime location and the seats were very comfy. The room itself was a... More

A friend treated me to afternoon tea at Palm Court so I shouldn't really be making any criticisms! I love going to different places for afternoon tea and had expected this place to be better than anywhere else I'd been. Sadly, this wasn't the case When you first walk into The Langham Hotel you feel as if you're in a... More

We booked a table for 5 for an 18th birthday party. The room itself is stunning and the service is second to none, as you may expect from a 5 star hotel. During the afternoon session they had a resident pianist which added a sense of occasion. We booked the champagne afternoon tea, which was a fabulously presented set of... More

Had afternoon tea here this afternoon. The staff and service were excellent and we didn't feel rushed at any time. We had table next to the pianist which we loved because it felt like he was playing for only us. The sandwiches and scones with jam and cream were very tasty however was disappointed with the cakes, they looked amazing... More

We stayed at Langham and had breakfast here. The tables are low and the chairs are too high for having a comfortable breakfast. It is a very nicely and luxuriously located place. You can enjoy this place if you are going for tea or for having drinks. But absolutely not good for breakfast. The staff is very nice but very... More

I found myself needing to waste 4 hours in London before catching the train back home. Instead of doing the usual shopping and making myself tired walking all over London I decided to make a reservation off the cuff at The Langham for Afternoon Tea. Table for 1 - doesn't sound good but I can honestly say the staff made... 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.
