Sun Pier House, Sun Pier, Medway Street, Chatham, ME4 4HF


From August 2019, we no longer operate as a Tearoom & Gallery. We have decided to try something new with the space, you can read our full statement here.  Our opening hours now change each month based on our events programme – please keep an eye on our social media pages, our events calendar and our newsletter for up to date news.

One day the much loved Tearoom may return, but after 5 years we’re taking a break from Rarebits and Bacon Sandwiches!


Opening Hours: 

Our opening hours change dependant on our exhibition and events programme – please check before travelling. 

Our standard hours are: Wed – Fri 11am – 4pm, and the first Saturday of the month 11am – 4pm.
