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 Library Lounge is one of my favourite places to visit for afternoon tea! It is in a wonderful location and the food is scrummy. The service is top quality!!! The staff are attentive without being intrusive and extremely friendly with nothing being too much trouble. Our glasses were never empty and the scones so delicious we had seconds.Myself and my 6 friends had a truly fabulous afternoon. Many Thanks!!!
    We shall all be returning.

    very poor- stae sandwiches and cakes- many complaints which resulted in scones being re baked. Sparkling wine not champagne as advertised.

    From the moment we walked into the hotel until the moment left we felt welcomed. We had enjoyed afternoon tea in the Library Lounge with endless bubbles. The food was absolutely delicious, particularly the scones and we were well and truly pampered. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Brilliant location, fantastic view and lovely room. Sandwiches were dry on one side which was a shame and to improve the overall atmosphere I would have preferred musicians playing instead of background music which was a bit jazzy for us.
