I hosted clients at Corinthia for lunch and cocktails. The service and ambiance was professional and chic. Also loved the confectionery of the hotel. Great place for business luncheons as the location is ideal.

I visited at 3.30pm on a Friday for Afternoon Tea with my mum and sister. It was a quiet day - perhaps 30% full. Having been to Claridges and The Dorchester for tea in recent months, I wanted to try somewhere different.

Staying in Westminster

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.
