The Langham is an iconic five star property, located in a prime location in the heart of the London. It holds fond memories for us, as we last visited during a staycation for on our first wedding anniversary. We have been wanting to enjoy the afternoon tea here for absolutely ages. Years in fact. We first actually booked it in 2019 to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately we had to cancel because of flu. We then re booked a visit for March 2020 and you all know what happened then. The covid-19 lockdown scuppered that plan. Little did we know the next time we would attempt to book in, our childcare had covid. On our fourth attempt we finally made it to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. Expectations were high and the much anticipated visit, was just as wonderful as we had hoped. The signature gorgeous perfume that diffuses through the hotel, takes us back to our previous stay and emanates luxury.
Given they offer a children’s afternoon tea we thought it would be acceptable to take our little one along for a fine dining experience. The staff were amazingly attentive to him and made him feel so special from the moment we walked in. He was given a lovely Langham colouring book and pencils before he managed to sit down, which adequately kept him busy throughout the afternoon tea.
The Palm Court is beautiful and has a really lovely atmosphere. The menu for the much anticipated afternoon looked wonderful.
The finger sandwiches were plentiful and delicious.
The patisserie were meticulously presented as petite, classic retro biscuits.
Followed by warm scones. and accompanied by a fine selection of teas and coffee, the afternoon tea was delightful.
Our culinary experience was not quite over, as the waiter brought out a special anniversary chocolate cake at the end.This was divine and made for a memorable finale to a long awaited celebration. This cake marked two years of anniversaries that had been spent at home due to the pandemic. So this cake was perhaps more momentous and meaningful than could be imagined.
