The Coffee Hatch
Our Coffee Hatch is famous in Newcastle. We sell fresh coffee, traditional and herbal teas, home-made cakes* and a traditional range of biscuits and chocolates. Probably the best value in the city and all served by a friendly face.
* Cakes subject to availability...
Book a Tour
Feel free to explore the Lit & Phil yourself and absorb its magic and wonders.
However, if you'd like a little help you can join one of our FREE guided tours, led by one of our award-winning tour guides, on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of the month, at 10.30am. (These can be very popular so booking is recommended - just call 0191 232 0192 to reserve a space).
There is usually a volunteer in the library at other times, ready to answer your questions and show you around.
Our librarians have a wealth of knowledge about the full collection so feel free to ask them any questions you may have. They love to help and share their expertise.
