Yes… Your eyesight hasn’t betrayed you: to mark its 146th birthday, luxury hotel The Langham is offering guests for one day only its award winning afternoon Tea for the original price it was served in 1865: seven pence instead of £38.
On 10th June 2011, guests at The Langham will be able to experience the afternoon tea at the original price it was sold when the hotel was opened in 1865 by HRH The Prince of Wales- not bad given the luxurious surroundings of the Regent Street hotel and the fact that its Wonderland Tea, normally priced at £38, received the 2010 Top London Tea Award from the Tea Guild.
Guests are invited to submit their table reservation request on-line at www.palm-court.co.uk/1865.html, from 8.00am Tuesday 10th May 2011 until Midnight on Tuesday 31st May 2011. Guests’ names will then be chosen at random and the lucky recipients will receive their reservation notifications by e-mail by 3rd June 2011. NB: while it is an “afternoon tea”, it will only be served at 11.30 am on that day.
