You may remember how a few weeks ago I had a mini-staycation at the luxury five star Langham Hotel in London (see my review and adventure here). Well after my relaxing overnight stay my mum came up to London to join me for the Wedgwood afternoon tea in the Langham's Palm Court. The Palm Court is a beautiful big modern room with high ceilings, ladies chattering over tea, and a pianist tinkling on the ivories. While mum went for the Langham blend tea, I had the Strawberry and Kiwi fruit tea...just look at the pretty colour of it!
We didn't have a big tiered stand, everything was brought to the table individually, which was actually quite nice. I think the sandwiches were my favourite part of the entire tea. Usually I'm a sweet toothed person, but it was so refreshing to have sandwiches that were a bit different. Mum and I agreed that the rolls were a nice change, and delicious too.
The scones were beautifully light and we loaded them up with strawberry jam and clotted cream. Very different to the Guiltless Tea I had last week!
Before we started on the cakes and patisseries we decided to have some champagne, and the waiter brought the magnum of Laurent Perrier over to fill up our glasses.
Now, the sweet treats were wonderfully delicate and very classy, but I do so love a big chunk of cake. They were very Parisian, and incredibly pretty, and definitely ideal for women who don't have a massive sweet tooth.
Our entire experience was truly delightful. The staff were fabulous and the food delicious. We took our time and didn't feel rushed, and the Palm Court is such a great place to people watch. It's funny, but despite being in such a large room full of other people, it still felt very intimate and cosy. If you're after a fancy afternoon tea for a special occasion, this is the place to come.

*Our afternoon tea was complimentary, however all my views are completely honest.
