From admiring Rembrandt’s brushstrokes to contemplating David Shrigley sculpture, there’s no better way to finish off a visit to an art location. Don’t worry, it is not about your standard coffee and cakes where you can’t sit down for a proper meal or bowls of gelato, you can have all the cocktails you can muster. Museums and restaurants are still daytime affairs, and the best of these include the Blueprint Café, the Wallace Collection and the V&A.
An essential part of going out for the day is the post gallery feed, having a coffee and a cake and deliberating with great food in one of our picks of gallery cafes. The V&A used to call itself an ace caff, but caffs simply don’t cut it, as the leading cultural institutions boast guest chefs and late-night opening nowadays. Don’t exit through the gift shop of London’s cultural institutions, as all the beautiful art UK has to offer is included in this handy guide, mixed with cafés, so you won’t be wandering the streets for scraps of food.
Museum and art gallery cafés have come of age, so we had to find a destination as an exhibition that will be able to feed the appetite as well, and such are the art gallery cafés.

If you decide to visit one of our top location then it’s an excellent idea to browse one of the many escort agencies and request the desired services, as these days they are everywhere in England.
