London Marriott County Hall (which we have previously reviewed here) is running an innovative offer to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Anyone called Elizabeth can enjoy a free afternoon tea at The Library in the month of June.
The Library is a lovely historic room at Marriott County Hall, the headquarters of the former London County Council on the South Bank overlooking the Thames and the Houses of Parliament as you can see below.
There are a few rules:
- The offer is only available to people whose legal name is ‘Elizabeth’ – not Liz, not Eliza, not Beth. You need to provide proof of name via a passport, driving licence etc.
- You can’t have free afternoon tea on a Saturday
- You need to book for two people, but only Elizabeth will get a free afternoon tea (ie. it is effectively 2-for-1)
Make sure you pre-book on The Library website here.
