A York Cafe has suddenly closed with plans to relocate to Saudi Arabia after the increasing costs in the city. The Tea Palace’s closure came so quickly that it shut its doors before the newly recruited staff could start to work there.

Sales Director Daniel Ibbotson says that a venue selling tea doesn’t fit well with a city more “focused on stag and hen parties”. He revealed that “The entire business is being relocated to Saudi Arabia and will focus on offering English tea and related British products.”
