Witches Tea

Great food, wonderful tea but boring. No tour, no talk, no information for 30 dollars. Not worth it.

What a great place, feels very much like a home and an interesting insight of Victorian Norfolk. Ladies who showed us around were so enthusiastic and genuinely cherished this museum. Certainly worth a visit.
