Back in September Ana and I went to the Leeds Art Gallery for an afternoon visit. It's fairly small, but it's easy to navigate. I spent a long while drooling over the Pre-Raphaelite section, particularly John William Waterhouse's The Lady of Shallott Looking at Lancelot:
Isn't it gorgeous?!
The gallery features a Victorian-era tea room in lieu of the standard cafe, so after our museum meandering Ana treated me to a little tea party complete with cake. The Yorkshire cream tea was delicious, and the addition of cake made it that much better. (Cake makes everything better.)

The gorgeous tea room
I love the Victorians -- did I say that already?
Check out the ceiling
Isn't it incredible?

People watching outside the window
A tiny bearded man has invaded my teacup!
That was Ana's initial reaction when she saw this photo
It does sort of appear that way, doesn't it?
I had a wonderful time pretending I was a Victorian lady at tea. If you are in the Leeds area, I would definitely recommend a visit to the Leeds Art Gallery and its delightful tearoom. The threat of tiny men taking over your teacup is minimal.
