“We enjoyed the afternoon tea experience”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We were 19 in the group and I booked the afternoon tea from Italy. They all agreed that it was one of the best outings in the whole of our tour of London. The setting in the Orangery is beautiful and the tea and cream cakes and scones with jam is very nice. Looking forward to returning with another group.

“Beautiful afternoon tea in the Orangery at The Fan Museum”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

If you are heading to Greenwich on. Tuesday or Sunday afternoon, book in advance The Afternoon Tea at The Fan Museum. You will have to pay entry fee to the museum which is quite interesting to visit but the Afternoon tea is a hidden gem. Must book in advance as tables are limited. The Orangery backs onto the beautiful garden although the room itself is enclosed. Friendly service and lovely English afternoon tea at reasonable prices.

“Small but interesting.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

A four pound entry fee for a very small but interesting museum about the history of the fan. Two rooms of lovely displays outlining the materials used in the making of the fans, and the history of the fans themselves. Some fans date back to the late 1600's. A quaint little gift shop.

“Fan”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Went today and found a tranquil place. Nice toilets, the staff were nice bar one who kept crying and was bossy and told eveyone that everything was awful. Orangery fantastic. Museum a bit small and dull but informative. It was very different and quirky.
