Photos capture Abbey House Cafe as it closes its doors for last time

The Gatehouse Cafe in Abbey House Museum closed its doors for the last time this week.

The cafe is due to relocate from Abbey House Museum to the visitor centre at Kirkstall Abbey, with the cafe re-opening ‘soon’.

WLD reported last year on Leeds City Council’s plans to relocate the café, with the aim of making an additional £90,000 per year from 2023. The proposals came at the same time as the council decided to start charging non-Leeds residents for entry to the Abbey ruins.

Photographer Susan Tellum captured the cafe through the seasons in this slideshow:
