London - Christmas Shopping

London has so much to offer the visitor and the advantage of this weekend is our Central London location gives you the opportunity to make the most of every moment in the Capital.

 

The Waldorf Astoria has a history dating back to 1908 and is one of London's most elegant hotels. The hotel was originally established by  William Waldorf Astor, 1st Viscount Astor, a member of the prominent Astor family.

 

The Waldorf salad may be over a century old, but even today, it remains a timeless American classic. The apple and walnut salad was first created in the late 1800s at New York's legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel, where it's still the most frequently requested recipe on the menu.

 

Afternoon tea at The Waldorf Hilton is always special. Put simply, you can't pay them a visit without sampling their take on one of Britain's favourite pastimes.

 

Whether you are celebrating an occasion or seeking an indulgent treat, enjoy their selection of freshly cut sandwiches and savouries before tucking into warm scones with clotted cream and jam. Finish with sweet treats and your choosing from a fabulous range of speciality teas.

 

Creating a real sense of occasion, their popular afternoon tea is skilfully prepared, served with precision and served in the Palm Court.

 

The Palm Court is the heart and soul of the Waldorf's rich history. Featuring original marble flooring and a glass ceiling, that retains its magic and awe when guests enter the room - as it did when the hotel hosted it's first Tango almost 100 years ago. It featured in the 1953 film 'Titanic' as the ballroom setting and is today protected by English Heritage.
