Offering postcard-worthy views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Afternoon Tea at The Library Lounge is housed in the Marriott County Hall Hotel. In this landmark building, gorgeous library-style surroundings offer old world charm.

On The Library Lounge menu, freshly-cut finger sandwiches feature traditional fillings with a refined twist, with offerings like cucumber & mint, Surrey duck egg mayonnaise and succulent roast beef with horseradish. Irresistible arrangements of cakes and fancies include English rhubarb and white chocolate lollipop or Valrhona chocolate mousse, as well as sweet and savoury scones served with seasonal jams and artisanal cheeses.

Piled high bookshelves and plush armchairs make for wonderfully cosy surroundings at The Library Lounge London. Luxurious liquid accompaniments include fine leaf teas, elegant flutes of champagne and sparkling wine, and cleansing gin cocktails.

A quintessentially English retreat in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, The Library Lounge South Bank is 4 minutes’ walk from Waterloo Station. The Library Lounge can be accessed via the main entrance to the London Marriott Hotel on Westminster Bridge Road. Alternatively, enter via the South Bank (Queen's Walk), above the London Aquarium. Valet parking is also available on site.

    We had a delicious afternoon tea in a lovely atmosphere. The only slight issue was that two of us got our drinks quickly whilst the other four had a long wait for their tea and had to remind staff to get it. Otherwise, staff were courteous and helpful.

    I truly cannot imagine a more divine setting for afternoon tea. On the Thames, looking at Big Ben, sipping Cava: absolutely perfect.

    Beautiful setting overlooking the Thames. We had been here before and the overall experience did not disappoint yet again. Lovely range of sandwiches and savoury scones . The cakes are very delicious too. We had the package with the free flowing bubbles, which is good value.
    Staff are very friendly and attentive. Will defiantly be going again

    Took my mum and sister here for the unlimited bubbles afternoon tea and had such an amazing time. Service was impeccable, food was great and our glasses were never left less than half full. Had the option to fill up on more sandwiches and scones, which we did because they were so yummy! The ambience was super relaxing and the decor was beautiful. Left feeling very satisfied, full and rather tipsy. Would recommend this to anyone, such good value and will definitely be coming back again!

    A wonderful afternoon tea in a very relaxed atmosphere with very attentive staff. The manageress was very pleasant & made time to personally chat with clients. Everything was just perfect from the surroundings, the view across the Thames, the mouthwatering sandwiches & selection of cakes & of course the unlimited bubbles! The savoury scones served with cream cheese were amazing. Will definitely be back.
