autumn bucket list updated

We were hoping to find a new Halloween themed Afternoon Tea in London this year – but all we could find was the Chocolate Tea at the Hilton Park Lane, which was enjoyed a few years ago. So instead we decided to have Afternoon Tea in one of our dream locations…

Afternoon Tea (again) @ The Langham

… Palm Court at the Langham Hotel. Of the several options available we went for the Wonderland Tea with champagne (of course).

As it was a birthday treat, at the end of the afternoon, we were presented with these lovely birthday cupcakes whilst the pianist serenaded us with a version of “Happy Birthday.”

This was an amazing treat, definitely one of our favourite locations for Afternoon Tea, The opulent comfy chairs, silver flatware and piano player in the Palm Court provides the perfect setting for a traditional Afternoon Tea (or High Tea which they serve in the evenings).
