Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium
Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium has been dubbed “an East London institution” by the London Evening Standard. As the first cat café to open in London, and the first cat café to double as a home for rescue cats in the United Kingdom, it has certainly earned its status as a must-visit destination for cat-loving tourists in the capital. This is evidenced by the fact that it has won a Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Award every year for the past five years.
With its English tearoom and wonderland-themed basement floor, Lady Dinah’s offers both a quintessentially British backdrop and a touch of novelty. The café offers various booking types such as Cream Tea with Cats for fans of tea and scones, a Happy Hour (well, Happy Meower) for fans of cocktails and bar snacks, and a birthday package for fans of elevating special occasions. It also regularly hosts evening events, such as its popular sip-and-paint event, Pinot & Pawtraits. Most importantly, the Emporium invites guests to relax in the company of its “mognificent” clowder. Its mission is to provide people with a delightful experience while also providing its resident rescue cats with a loving, safe and stimulating environment.
It’s easy to make a day of a trip Lady Dinah’s! The café is located on Bethnal Green Road, a vibrant slice of East London life which is just around the corner from the historic Brick Lane. Brick Lane is replete with bars, curry houses and vintage-clothes shops as well as being the site of a bustling antiques, fashion, art and food market every Sunday. The Emporium is also within walking distance of Columbia Road Flower Market, Spitalfields Market, Whitechapel Gallery, Dennis Severs’ House and The V&A Museum of Childhood, to name just a few nearby attractions.
