There are definitely a wide range of characters to be found in this lounge in the afternoons. Despite its up-market credentials tipsy ladies and guffawing men are not unusual and make it an unpleasant place to sit quietly for tea or coffee during a visit to central London. I would keep the alcoholic drinks in the back bar so that... More

We've enjoyed afternoon tea at the Corinthia several times but the Wimbledon afternoon tea we had today to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday was the best yet. The selection of cakes were beautifully designed and delicious. Service was excellent and my daughter appreciated the special cake with a candle.

One of the best places in London (from my point of view) for late evening meeting and whiskey consuming with very cozy fireplace inside the hotel's atrium. Service is just brilliant

I have walked passed many times and wanted to know more. At last my chance came for an informal business meeting and I was just so impressed. Whilst the Wimbledon theme was topical there was no doubt that the service was exemplary.

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.
