I met my son here for afternoon tea - a great range of sandwiches made on quality bread. I was glad they offered seconds! And the sweet dishes was equally good - superb scones to!

Impressive lobby area for our afternoon tea prior to a visit to the theatre. A recent comment mentioned the outer area also acted as a walkway for guests and maybe should have given it thought when booking as there was a constant flow of people passing by our table which at times was a bit annoying. Unfortunately if you serve... More

Brought my daughter here. Absolutely lovely setting - stylish but relaxed and very friendly staff. There's a standard afternoon tea of sandwiches and cake with the only variation being whether you add champagne. Sandwiches were delicious mix of traditional English sandwiches. The scones were also lovely but the cakes were generally a disappointment. Far too much for two people. However... More

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.
