A Touch of Victoriana

Visited our new community cafe down at the Railway Station today.

It's called "Carriages" and already the local Steampunks have been down there drooling at it. It is certainly beautifully used space, and reminds me of a bar featured in a scene in "The Prestige", the film about rival Victorian magicians that all should see.

I'm hoping work related charity functions might use it. I mean it has an orrery which is one of the coolest things of ever.

It also has multi coloured gins on tap.

  1. What a wonderful cafe! The orrery certainly is cool, every home should have one! I am not so sure about the palm reading clock, it looks a bit spooky.;-)

    A splendid cafe thanks for the tour around it Si!

  2. What a wonderful place - love the orrery too :) A lovely cafe wish I could visit :)
