About Palm Court

Vintage champagne and award-winning Afternoon Tea in Edinburgh. All to be enjoyed under the canopy of our exotic palm trees.


Palm Court is an Edinburgh institution that’s as glittering as its glass dome and Venetian chandelier. The place to sample our award-winning Afternoon Tea and a wide selection of loose leaf teas, coffee and pastries. Sip vintage champagne and try to spot the Calton Hill follies hidden on the wallpaper. A harpist provides the perfect accompaniment
