Quaint attraction

Bit random but very cool with every possible teapot design you could imagine. Cream tea in the cafe was very nice too. A good way to spend an hour or so.

We visited this place today, the museum was interesting and we then went into the tea shop. NOT a good experience. We spent £8 on 2 cups of teas, two scones, a small saucer of jam and a small tub of clotted cream. We wanted to share the scones as there were 2 of us and the scones were a... More

Such a nice cafe/restaurant/ tearoom. Outside seating by the River Medway offering breakfasts and lunch and afternoon tea. They do roast on Sunday. No reason not to keep going back. My favourite place !

I try to find different and interesting places to take a friend for her birthday each year. This year, it was Teapot Island. We had a great time inspecting the collection of interesting and amusing exhibits. My friend was particularly impressed with the Franz poppy items although, of course, none of the items in the actual exhibition are for sale... More

Took my mum here one morning for breakfast. Lovely friendly staff made us feel very welcome. We both had scrambled egg on toast which was cooked to perfection. Lovely setting. Will be going back soon.

We'd heard of this attraction and decided to give it a go. I was a bit apprehensive at the thought of a 60 mile round trip to see a teapot but the wife had made her mind up that I'd enjoy it. I'm glad that she did. The Teapot museum was absolutely amazing I could have spent another couple of... More

We visited after being recommended by a friend. The word 'quirky' appears in several reviews and it has probably never been more apt. To be honest , I wasn't expecting much and was completely blown away by the scale of the collection. It just goes on and on and costs very little to get in. It is surprisingly compelling. The...

Cheepish and resonably basic food but a great place to spend the afternoon and chill out. Staff very nice teapot collection is great for its quirkyness.

Came here with my Fiance and her sister and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were really friendly and gave us some good background information when we asked. The museum is certainly something unique worth seeing. I had the large breakfast which was delicious, my fiance enjoyed her jacket potato and her sister was thoroughly impressed that they did a...
