The Lightbox Café


Visit The Lightbox Café for a delicious lunch or snack or even treat yourself to a scrumptious cake and a coffee. The Lightbox Café is the perfect way to complete a visit to The Lightbox or a great destination to just pop in for a quick bite to eat or a coffee, and is great value too.

Furthermore, when the sun is shining, the Café extends into the beautiful canal-side courtyard garden where visitors can enjoy dining alfresco.


A selection of juices, cakes and coffees available from the LicketySplit at The Lightbox cafe.
