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.

    Amazing service, food and unlimited bubbles...cava but delicious. Staff very attentive and didn't have to ask for anything, glasses topped up before empty and even asked if we wanted more sandwiches and cakes.

  • ((((( 18 July 2017 by Sandi Campbell-mcclain from San Juan Capistrano

    Tea in Marriott's Library lounge was lovely and the free flowing bubbly was terrific. The savory scone was exceptional as was a chocolate salted caramel sweet. We would have enjoyed a larger amount of the chicken curry on one of the sandwiches but the coriander bread that it was served on was also exceptional!

    Perfect from start to finish. Arrived early, no problem. Very warm greeting. Had unlimited fizz afternoon tea and it really was. Will definitely be returning.

    Treated my nieces and nephew to afternoon tea as it was their first time. From the moment we entered the library we were treated like royalty. The setting was perfect with views of Big Ben, the staff were attentive and went out of their way to give us an enjoyable afternoon.

    Lovely afternoon tea! We were given a table overlooking the Thames and Westminster Bridge. The staff were very attentive and helpful and the bubbles really were free flowing. I would recommend this experience!

  • ((((( 5 July 2017 by Japleen Kaur from London

    What an amazing experience! The views were amazing we had a table next to the window overlooking Westminster house and Big Ben. Our glasses of bubbly were never empty and all the staff was so courteous. But most of all the food was excellent, especially the warm scones- savoury and sweet. Would highly recommend.
