Fancy a Brew?

The world's 1st museum devoted to the history of tea & coffee

Location: 40 Southwark Street, SE1 1UN

Description: The Bramah Museum, only two minutes from London Bridge Station, is the world's first museum devoted entirely to the history of tea and coffee.

It tells the commercial and social 400 year old history of two of the world's most important commodities since their arrival in Europe from the Far East and Africa.

The museum believes everything possible should be done to maintain and if possible improve the quality of tea and coffee offered to the public. Also near this fantastic museum location is the 'George Inn' with its original seventeenth century coffee room.

It's thirsty work...with the ceremony of English afternoon tea popularised throughout the world by the British and is kept alive in our authentic tea room. The five minute wait for the tea to infuse is the heart and soul of English afternoon tea.

The ritual had an etiquette which enabled the matriarch of the family to impress and entertain - Cream Tea or Afternoon Teas are a must - check the webby for details - Fancy a Brew!
