Drink tea in a Stable

The Karmarama Café at the Orleans House Gallery, in Twickenham, is a lovely spot for a drink or a bite to eat and is found in the former North Stable block of Orleans House.

As we have examined previously, the house was built in the 18th century, by Secretary of State for Scotland James Johnston, and was eventually demolished in 1926. The remaining buildings protected by a subsequent owner who left them to the borough when she died in 1962, she left the property and her art to the Borough.

The Café is open Wednesday - Sunday from 10:30am until 5pm. It's not cheap, but there are some decent bits and pieces available, and it's a lovely setting. For more, see http://www.richmond.gov.uk/orleans_house_gallery
