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.

    The whole afternoon was faultless. Fabulous views of Big Ben whilst we sipped our 'bottomless bubbles' and tucked into a lovely array of sandwiches and cakes.

    Excellent choice of sandwiches, cakes & savoury & sweet scones - different choice of tea for each member of party - attentive without being intrusive service - bubbles kept flowing without asking - Had a window seat excellent view of the Thames, would return.

    We had afternoon tea at The Library Lounge and from when we arrived to when we left the service was fantastic and we were looked after very well. The food and unlimited bubbles was defintiely worth the money. We would thoroughly recommend this venue and experience to anyone that wants to have a lovely afternoon.
