A Lazy Sunday | The Saatchi Gallery with Afternoon Tea


Lucy & I took a trip down to London this past Sunday, partly to visit Lucy’s sister who moved to London last year but also so I could take Lucy for afternoon tea as part of her Christmas present, and to have a look around the Saatchi Gallery as neither of us had been before. 

The Saatchi Gallery is a contemporary art gallery situated in Chelsea - although it has also been located in North London and on South Bank previously. It houses many artists which are unknown to both the general public but also commercially so its a great place to check out if you want to see something new and interesting. The exhibitions change frequently too so its a place you can visit again and again without seeing the same thing a hundred times over. If you happen to be near the Sloane Square area its a great place to wonder round for an hour if you have some time to kill as well as it doesn’t cost anything to get in.

Before we went into the Saatchi Gallery we stopped for afternoon tea at the Gallery Mess restaurant which is attached to the gallery. Lucy & I both love afternoon tea so we were more than excited to try out a new spot. We both opted for traditional English breakfast tea and our cake stand arrived with a selection of sandwiches, a scone each and a selection of cakes - the dark chocolate torte was mouth wateringly good. The setting of the restaurant is really nice too with exposed brick work and antique look mirrors - I didn’t get a picture though as the restaurant was busy. The staff were welcoming and it was very reasonably priced considering the area of London it’s situated. I would highly recommend reserving a table though to avoid a long wait.

How did you spend your Sunday?
