What you'll do

Leyden Gallery hosts Afternoon Tea with a twist! For a totally unique experience, join us for tea and cake in an established London art gallery. Situated in the vibrant and artistic area of Spitalfields, there you will be offered the opportunity to relax and unwind with art. We will begin with a special tour of Leyden Gallery’s current exhibition. You might spot works by Paula Rego or Henry Moore, or perhaps exciting expressions in other art forms including installation, sculpture, painting and prints. You will also get the chance to meet the Gallery Directors and Curators who will share the history of Leyden Gallery, as well as give you a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how artists are selected, how exhibitions are made and how galleries exist in the world of art. For Afternoon Tea, choose from Leyden Gallery’s tea menu selected especially for this experience, and enjoy the freshly made cake of the day. Alternately, choose our ‘sparkling tea’ option for fabulous Prosecco. The experience lasts for one hour and thirty minutes, but guests are welcome to stay longer to soak up the art and atmosphere, and buy drinks from Leyden Gallery’s artBAR including speciality cocktails! Guests that book this experience will also receive the special opportunity to have a discount on artworks, art gifts, art books and tickets to upcoming events if purchased during their visit!
