Coffee Morning Locations month by month


A list of venues for 2018. It will grow as the year progresses. Here you will find details of where to meet and brief notes explaining how to get to each location.

Morning Topic
Tuesday 16 January 2018

We shall meet in the Cross Keys for a short lecture. The Wetherspoon pub is on the west side of Gracechurch Street, near Monument underground station.

We now have the numbers, see you on Tuesday morning.   

Morning Topic
Tuesday 6 February 2018

We shall meet at the Cross Keys pub, Gracechurch Street.

We are still ONE below minimum numbers but the Coffee Morning will go ahead.   

Morning Topic
Tuesday 6 March 2018

We shall meet at the Cross Keys pub, Gracechurch Street. With all the cold weather it would seem to be the best place!

Unfortunately there are insufficient numbers for the Coffee Morning.  

Tuesday 10 April 2018

We shall meet at the Courthouse Hotel, Shoreditch. It stands at the Shoreditch end of Old Street and it used to be the Shoreditch Magistrate's Court. The coffee is probably expensive but the experience is worth it. To get there from London Bridge Station, take a bus to 'Shoreditch Church' bus stop and just walk around the corner into Old Street. The building is too large to miss. We shall hope to go for a walk around the area – weather permitting!

We shall be very low in number but we will meet at the hotel.

 PLEASE NOTE – If it is wet (which is quite likely) we shall remain in the hotel.

Morning Topic
Tuesday 8 May 2018

We shall meet in the Lalit Hotel (which was once St Olave's Grammar School). The building is in Tooley Street. If you are walking down from London Bridge Station, it is on your left. Enter the building and ask for the coffee lounge/bar.

The Coffee Morning will go ahead. See you at the hotel.  

Morning Topic
Tuesday 12 June 2018

We are meeting at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, Rotherhithe Street. It is served by the C10 which starts at Canada Water Station and has a bus stop outside the hotel. There will be a short walk to see the immediate area.

Due to very low numbers the Coffee Morning has been cancelled. We shall hope to repeat the same meeting in July.  


Morning Topic
Tuesday 10 July 2018

We are meeting at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel, Rotherhithe Street. Same details as for June.

The Coffee Morning has been cancelled due to very low numbers. There will be a new venue for August.  

Morning Topic
Tuesday 7 August 2018

We are meeting at the cafe in the basement of the Salvation Army building, in Queen Victoria Street. We have been there before. The nearest underground station is Mansion House. PLEASE BE AWARE: There are still problems with the buses crossing London Bridge (due to works at the north end) and also in Cannon Street. A better railway station and also underground station might be Blackfriars. Railway trains are once more running between London Bridge Station and Blackfriars.

Not everyone has replied yet but we shall be meeting.  

Morning Topic
Tuesday 11 September 2018

We are back at the Crosse Keys and we are hoping for a good turnout for the start of the new academic year.

We shall be meeting next Tuesday, see you there.  


London Wall Place
Tuesday 9 October 2018

We are meeting at the Museum of London. The coffee bar is just inside the entrance, on the left. From there we shall take a stroll along London Wall.

Not everyone has replied yet. Enough people have replied for the Coffee Morning to go ahead.  

Aldgate Square
Tuesday 6 November 2018

We are meeting at the cafe in Aldgate Square. The easy way to arrive is to take the Circle Line to Aldgate Underground Station (NOT Aldgate East). On exiting the station turn RIGHT and Aldgate Square is a few yards away. The Kahaila Cafe looks rather like a tent.

We now have the numbers and we shall be meeting at Aldgate. 



Please note that because a Coffee Morning is listed here, it does not mean that it will take place.

Please email or phone Adrian Prockter to let him know that you intend to come. If numbers are not sufficient, the event will be cancelled. A notification that an event will go ahead will appear beside the Coffee Morning as soon as there are sufficient numbers. If there are not enough people, the 'traffic light' sign will remain 'red'.
