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.

    Enjoyed having tea in a library setting with good views across the Thames

  • ((((( by from Sidcup

    Had a lovely afternoon tea with my husband. The bubbles kept coming right up until we were leaving. The sandwiches were good especially liked the cheese scones with chive cream cheese they were delicious. Also a very good selection of pastries. We had a great view of Big Ben and the river. Lovely comfortable armchairs, staff were very attentive nothing was too much trouble. A very relaxing experience would definitely recommend a visit. Very good value at only £39 have paid a lot more for inferior teas.

    We were in the library lounge for afternoon tea with free flowing bubbles. The library lounge is just a perfect setting. Surrounded by books, a view over the Thames to the Houses of Parliament and background music. There was a superb selection of teas and the most delicious food. Finger sandwiches of salmon, beef, ham etc. Savoury and sweet scones that were so light and extremely tasty. To finish there were the most devine cakes. The staff were attentive, very friendly and always there with the champagne...the glass never ran dry. We were there as a birthday treat for my friend and just when we got to the point of not being able to eat or drink another thing the staff brought my friend a special birthday cake complete with candle! Fantastic. This 'experience' has got to be the best. Highly recommended. We shall be doing this again....a very special treat.
