Last weekend the girls and I decided we'd have a cultural day around Middlesbrough. We visited the MIMA which is pretty cool but slightly empty like some exhibitions were fairly cool like there's one by Markus Karstieß called Hello Darkness which included loads of pot and stuff it's hard to describe but there is a photo on the Mima web page if you have a look haha. So once we'd finished taking Museum selfies and getting soaked in the rain we popped into The Olde Young Tea House now I've been wanting to visit since I started at Teesside Uni and hadn't gotten around to it until last weekend, now I want to live there.
This quite possibly the worst photo of me ever due to rain and lack of sleep but oh well.
We ate and chatted and drank plenty of tea it was a really nice afternoon, I can't wait to go back for my birthday afternoon tea in March! The place is so cute and friendly it's so cosy and you just never want to leave. The girls who run it are lovely also, they were happy to let me take photos and to answer any questions we had which was great.
I honestly couldn't recommend the place enough to anyone who likes tea or just wants to sit and have a nice relaxing cute afternoon in Middlesbrough since this is definitely a hidden gem! You could walk right by the stores it's that cute and small the perfect size for it though! The prices are great aswell! I think it was £5 for the scone and a pot of tea, you can't go wrong really! I can't wait to visit it again and have more scones and some cake!
Have you ever been to The Olde Young Tea House? What did you do last weekend?
