We look forward to serving you at the Cat Emporium! Here are a few things to help you plan your visit!
How much does it cost?
It costs £15pp to visit the Cat Emporium for 90 minutes. All our sessions are the same price, and you can apply upgrades during the booking process to add on Afternoon Tea (+15pp), prepaid food and drink items, Birthday Gifts (Prices vary) and more. These are added to your entry fee and charged at time of booking and are often discounted if you upgrade in advance.
Are there any restrictions?
Yes! The two most important things to know is that children under the age of 12 are not permitted in the Cat Emporium and that the group size limit is 6.
We have configured our booking system so that it is not possible to book for more than 6 people together, so please don't place multiple bookings to bypass this limit.
Can I bring my own cat?
No thank you! Your cat and our cats might not get on, so it's really best not to. To our knowledge, bring-your-own-cat cafes don't exist.
Can I bring my support dog?
From the point of view of law and equality yes, but cats will give a support dog a wide berth and this is not something we can control. You will likely have a better experience if you bring a human helper.
Can I cuddle the cats?
You can pet our cats and play with them, but we don't allow guests to pick them up and hold them. It's important that the cats can choose where to go and if they are frequently held against their will, they will avoid people. Because of this policy, we have guests enjoying lap cats and even piggybacks with the cats. This kind of fun only happens if the cats feel safe.
Can I bring treats for the cats?
No thank you! Our cats have a managed diet and we have to be strict about what they eat. If you have food or treats that you'd like to gift, we recommend contacting your local cat shelter as their need is greater than ours and their cats awaiting adoption deserve a treat far more than our spoiled lot!
Most of our other FAQs are answered elsewhere on our site, so please use the 'Cafe Information' menu at the top of this page, or the 'Dine with us' menu in the footer of this page to locate more information about our cat cafe experience !
