Afternoon tea at the Langham Hotel

As a belated birthday treat for Rachel, we went for afternoon tea at the Langham Hotel.

Escorted to our seats in the plush environs of the art deco Palm Court, we spent the next two hours trying (in vain) to eat our way through two tiers of dainty sandwiches and cakes, four tiny, feather light scones and a signature cupcake, accompanied by endless (Wedgewood) pots of tea and a glass of champagne each.

Thank heavens for their (suitably non-tacky, but never-the-less surprising) doggy bag boxes.

(Dreadful website though….)
