A Bit Of Byron...



A Bit Of Byron...

'Poetry Cafe' - provides a warm & cosy haven for simply relaxing

Location: 22 Betterton Street, WC2H 9BX

Description: London can be mad, hectic, busy, grumpy, and a little too much at times - so here's a place that can simply take you away.

Away to the world of poetry - the 'Poetry Cafe' - provides a warm and cosy haven for deep thinkers liberated only by a cup of tea or coffee, or dare I say a slice of cake.

You don't have to be a 'Byron buff' to get in, rather someone who wants to take a break and chill, whilst breathing in the atmosphere. The Cafe also double as a performance space, so there is simply something for everyone. Check their website.
