The courtyard garden @ the Lobby lounge, a hidden treat.....

If your visiting London, make time for afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco in the lobby lounge at the Corinthia, and if the weather allows, the courtyard garden is just wonderful place to sit.

As you walk into the lobby, you know your walking into something special. Grand chandelier looms over the huge room, wonderful flowers and a pristine layout. Staff are quick and overly polite which made this a fanatic afternoon. Pre booking seems to be important here as it looked pretty much full.

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.
