We have finally reached the gateway to the holiday season. As the gates to the season open, we are eager to share four notable festive afternoon teas in central London. These celebratory indulgences are a perfect complement to a day at one of London’s Christmas markets, a Broadway play, or shopping along Oxford Street.

The Langham, London

This yuletide The Langham, London is celebrating the theme of journeys, together with partner, Globe Trotter, the luxury luggage company. The theme of journeys will also be reflected in Festive Afternoon Tea, where the menu showcases our chefs, who have travelled from all over the world to The Langham, London. Highlights of the chef’s heritages will include inspiration from countries like Portugal, Japan, and France.  

For true indulgence The Langham, London is delighted to have partnered with Dom Perignon offering a very special afternoon Tea experience.

Festive Afternoon Tea starts at £70 per person (£35 for children ages 3-12), and will be served until the 5th of January, 2020. Please note that on the 24th-26th & 31st of December, the price of Festive Afternoon Tea will be £84 (including a glass of champagne).

Corinthia London

Guests of Corinthia London will be treated to the elegant setting of the hotel’s Crystal Moon Lounge. Listen to festive melodies played on a Steinway piano while your expert Tea Sommelier will weigh and infuse the bespoke blend teas, as well as control the brewing times to perfect the flavor.

The Christmas afternoon tea menu will offer a selection of delicious finger sandwiches including roast
turkey and cranberry and truffle egg mayonnaise, and traditional scones with spiced damson and
whiskey jam. A heritage trolley abundant with tiers of beautiful pastries and cakes, from which guests
will be served, will be crowned with Christmas cake and fancies inspired by “the most wonderful time
of the year”.

Priced at £60 per person (or £70 with a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne, and £80 with a glass
