A place to share my two loves: beauty and food.

National Portrait Gallery Cafe


During half term my boyfriend took time off work so we could have fun exploring London without the weekend rush. I love going to see photography exhibitions, every year I go to the National History Museum to see the wildlife photos as they are insane. Last week we decided to go see the Bailey's Stardust Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. If you like photography then you will love these, his style predominately throughout his career were black and wait portraits of various people and celebrities. The background is always white and the clarity of the muse's emotions is breath taking.


After feasting our eyes on exhibition we decided to eat at the cafe upstairs which is know for its amazing views across Trafalgar Square. We opted for the two course meal which was £25.00 and utterly delicious! We started with smoked mackerel on a potato salad and I followed it with corn fed chicken with a flageolet bean, fennel and chorizo stew - heavenly with the rainy weather outside! 




Then we washed it down with carrot cake and coffee. It was such a lovely day and I would recommend both the cafe and the exhibition to anyone. The views are amazing and I loved having a wander around Trafalgar Square in the sunshine afterwards.
