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.

    5 of us visited the Library Lounge for a special birthday. The whole experience was 5* from start to finish. Staff were attentive and food and teas were delicious. The champagne was flowing and refilled as soon as glass was empty. As we were finishing they brought out a happy birthday platter which we never asked for. Would highly recommend.

    Delicious afternoon tea with great views across the Thames.
    The waiters were very generous with the bubbles too!

    Food was ok plenty of bubbles but didn't expect 10% to be added onto the bill. I like to make my own decision regarding leaving a tip so poor show Marriott most disappointing
