Eating, drinking and shopping

The Courtauld Shop i Photo: Dan Weill

We have crafted a shopping and eating experience inspired by the world-class artworks on display at The Courtauld.

The Courtauld shop is open daily from 10am – 6pm. You do not need a ticket to enter the shop. Please ask a member of staff for directions.

The Courtauld Shop

Now located in the atmospheric vaulted space beneath the building, The Courtauld Shop offers a unique retail experience for lovers of art and design. Alongside prints and postcards of much-loved artworks from The Courtauld collection, discover an exclusive range of homewares, fashion, and gifts sourced from independent creators across the UK. Whether you’re looking for a memento of your visit, a gift for a loved one, a statement piece for your home, or a limited edition, you will find something to suit your taste and budget in the shop.

When purchasing items in the shop, we will only provide a small paper bag for items such as postcards, we therefore recommend you bring your own. Alternatively, we sell a range of reusable tote bags starting from £5.50. If you have any questions, please contact

Our retail range is available to view and purchase online. Visit The Courtauld Shop online now to browse the collection.

Art Café

Striking, stylish yet relaxed and welcoming, Art Café is The Courtauld’s new all-day restaurant and bar located on the ground floor. The warm vibrant interior has been inspired by the bohemian creativity of the Bloomsbury Group; and a colour palette favoured by the designs and creations of the Omega Workshop.

The café is open from 10.00am until 6.00pm (apart from Sundays when it closes at 5.00pm) with last orders 30 minutes beforehand. A changing seasonal menu of pastries, snacks and meals prepared by Company of Cooks, a range of hot drinks also available to take away and a fully stocked bar, open into the evening. There is no need to book as there is no reservation service in place. Just turn up and enjoy.

To gain step free access to the Art Café, visitors can enter via The Courtauld Gallery reception doors, which are located next to the entrance to the Art Café. A member of The Courtauld team will be able to guide you to the café via a separate access door.

More than just a place to stop during a visit, Art Café is a destination in itself and will provide a place to meet, work, refuel and enjoy.

A new alcoholic drink and cocktail menu has been introduced to the Art Café for 2023.
