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.

    Very nice, thanks!

    Arrived to a stunning library room, pairs of large comfy chairs and tables separated by large book shelves for added privacy. All with stunning views of the Thames and Big Ben just across the river- and was fortunate to see the sunset over the skyline during our stay, absolutely beautiful.
    Sandwiches were lovely, would've enjoyed a second round of them (as I have experienced elsewhere at other afternoon teas) and the scones and cakes were delicious. Especially the mini banoffee pie!
    Unlimited prosecco was definitely unlimited! Staff topped up our glasses throughout- never had an empty glass! Definitely worth the money. Cannot mention much about the tea itself, as we stuck to the bubbles :)
    Would definitely return in the near future.

    This was my third visit. I absolutely love coming here. Perfect setting, lovely food and the bubbles help.
    Very very warm welcome from the staff as always, great setting and so relaxed. We carried our afternoon on in the bar into the night. I can't recommend this anymore. We will be returning.

    It was a nice thing to do on a wet grey London afternoon! The venue is interesting, the service very good! The flowing champagne great! The chairs a bit low though!!
