HIMLEY Hall's coffee lounge is now open all year round.

The Dudley Council-run café is based in two of the larger rooms in the hall, and looks out onto the terrace, lawns and lake in the distance.

Since it opened earlier this year, hundreds of visitors have stopped by and due to popular demand it will now remain open throughout the autumn and winter seasons, on Wednesdays through to Sundays from 11am to 4pm.

The lounge opens directly into the hall’s gallery space so visitors can view the latest exhibition during their time in the hall.

Access to the coffee lounge is through the side entrance by the South Wing entrance of the main hall. There is full disabled access, toilets and baby changing facilities and although dogs are not allowed in the hall, assistance dogs are welcome.

The hall also offers pre-booked, indulgent afternoon teas on selected dates throughout the year.

Visitors are advised that the Coffee Lounge will be closed on certain dates throughout the winter season, including the weekend of the bonfire.
