This is truly my favourite spot for afternoon tea! I have been more times than I can count and the standard is always top notch. With changing menus throughout the year and a diverse tea selection, this place is worth a visit.

We decided to take the day off and treat ourselves to an Afternoon Tea experience at the Corinthia hotel. As it was a weekday whilst the lobby wasn't over busy, there was still a great vibe in the place. The Menu consisted of 6 different sandwiches (Salmon, Coronation Chicken, Egg Mayonnaise, Cheese, Roast Beef and Smoked Trout) which were all... More

Delicious meal with perfect presentation and service. My only gripe being the two foot wide centre leg on the tables. I can't sit splay legged all evening, so had to resort to a less than comfortable side saddle approach which was less than comfortable. However, I hope to soon return and enjoy another sublime meal there

Enjoyed afternoon tea with a couple of friends after a busy shopping afternoon. The marvellous service staff immediately brought me a refreshing and reinvigorating green tea (wonderful selection on the tea menu), sweet and scones just made my day. Thank you very much for the great time.

My husband and I had afternoon tea on 2/18/15. We actually arrived about 20 minutes prior to our tea reservation and were seated immediately. We were each presented a menu with a selection of teas and descriptions of the finger sandwiches and ‘fancies’ (small cakes and other confections). I informed the server of my dietary preferences and she asked the... More

Want to go posh in London for afternoon tea then go to the Corinthia. I have been to most of the top hotels in London for afternoon tea and this was one of the best.

When a hotel "themes" an afternoon tea, you're always worried about what you're going to get. The selection is normally reduced and the idea isn't well thought out, however the Corinthia Lobby Lounge has got it spot on. You're surrounded by beautiful white & silver decorations, and you feel like you have been transported to Narnia. Fires are crackling in... More

Things to do Nearby

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
