Hello Kitty fans can enjoy themed food and drinks inspired by the feline figure in a new cafe in the capital at London's Somerset House. 

The Hello Kitty cafe's opening at the art centre comes amid its latest exhibition titled Cute, which spotlights the cartoon icon ahead of its 50th anniversary next year.

Presented by retailer ARTBOX, who specialises in offering cute character goods, the cafe is inspired by Japanese kawaii cafe culture and, of course, is crammed full of Hello Kitty decorations within a pink-filled space. 

Here's everything Hello Kitty fans need to know about the cafe, including where it is, when it's open and what's on the menu.
