Escape reality with various treats and getaways at The Langham, London
With the downturn in international visitors, traditional bedroom demand is at a low in the capital. Many London hotels are having to adapt to find more innovative and creative ways for guests to experience their properties. And Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’, The Langham, London that opened back in 1865, is blazing a trail in this regard. From its stunning location at the top of Regent Street, the hotel houses luxurious guestrooms and suites, a spa and various exciting dining possibilities, much of which has recently completed an extensive renovation.
Tea in the Palm Court
As the first ever hotel to serve Afternoon Tea, tea in the Palm Court has always been a luxurious affair. A brand-new menu from Chef Michel Roux Jr. and Executive Pastry Chef Andrew Gravett pays homage to some of the most familiar and classic tastes associated with tea. Pastries are inspired by the humble beginnings of Britain’s favourite biscuits: Chocolate Digestive, Custard Cream, Fig Roll, Iced Gem and Bakewell Tart – all of which have been elegantly reimagined to elevate these quintessentially British flavours. Together with traditional warm scones, homemade preserves and finger sandwiches, the Palm Court’s Afternoon Tea is served across three sitting times to allow for social distancing measures. Each seating includes a complimentary glass of Gurbourne English sparkling wine. Bookings are essential to monitor the flow of people coming into dine and socialise responsibly.
Remote Working at The Langham, London
In light of people needing to work from home, for the first time The Langham, London offers a day rate package for those looking for a sanctuary to escape and work in a productive environment, away from the risk of interruption. Guests can enjoy all those amenities overnight guests have access to, including an extensive in-room dining menu and high speed WiFi. On their lunch break, guests can use the spa and gym facilities or take a Langham bike for a cycle around the local area.
Food & Drink
If you’re missing late nights out in the capital, The Langham’s Artisian bar is serving a menu inspired by the era of disco where drinks were fun, brightly coloured and reflective of the time. The team have chosen their favourite 12 classic disco cocktails and given them an Artesian twist. The Wigmore, the hotel’s modern British tavern is serving a comforting seasonal menu that ranges from giant XXL Three Cheese Toastie to The Wigmore’s signature pies.
Or if you’re keen to experience the kitchen yourself, the hotel’s own cookery school, Sauce by The Langham is the place in which trade secrets are shared and the best ingredients are prepared. Classes at Sauce are interactive, inspiring, and, most importantly, fun. The school is a space to create great memories and gain priceless knowledge from leading experts within their field. It even caters for little guests, by offering a children’s cookery class for aspiring chefs aged 4-10.
