The Home of Afternoon Tea

Sponsored by

Enjoy an edible slice of history

Just off Oxford Street and directly opposite the Portland stone behemoth of the BBC headquarters in the very heart of London’s West End, the Langham is a hotel steeped in history and is a veritable old master when it comes to luxe, so it should come as no surprise to learn that, in a competitive field with many pretenders to the crown, the Langham reigns supreme when it comes to the art of the English afternoon tea.


Beautiful tiers of cakes and sandwiches and piping-hot pots of tea are just part of it. This is a ritual with a story to tell, and The Langham has one of the UK's most celebrated etiquette experts, William Hanson, on hand to share his knowledge of the history and rituals surrounding this centuries-old ceremony.


Let the hotel’s “tea sommelier” help you choose from the vast selection of blends from across the globe as, over a perfectly crafted selection of sweets and savouries, the unusual and little-known secrets of this luxuriant and highly flavourful experience will all be revealed.
