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.

    Bit confusing advert it's not champagne it's free flowing CAVA! Bring everything out together so tea cold by the time u eat your scones and jam. Food nice enough but should be brought out in stages. Staff more bothered about serving the cava but they were very polite and pleasant. Quite nice setting though. Also no mention of service charge which was added to the £39each bit cheeky I thought and not fantastic value for money.

    Afternoon tea at the Library Lounge was superb. We were not rushed through our tea, the bubbles really were free flowing and the service was excellent. Absolutely great!

    Absolutely lovely, right from the choice of tea, which we could smell before choosing, to the food and the endless supply of champagne. The staff were polite and attentive, offering us more tea and extra sandwiches, scones etc.The views from the Library Lounge were fantastic and the Library itself was relaxing and full of atmosphere with books filling the glass cases. Best Afternoon tea I have had in London!!
