Description
Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms is nestled in the village of Leura within the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and is home to the world's largest private collection of teawares. There are more than 5,500 teapots in the collection, spanning five centuries and including teapots from all over the world, most of which were collected within Australia. The Treasured Teapot Museum reflects and preserves the diversity of Australian tea-drinking culture. Everywhere you look you will see teapots and tea-related artefacts, old and new, rare or common from Australia, America, Asia, Africa and Europe. Teapots are made in a range of materials and are all on display including china, silver, silver plate, pottery, fine porcelain, cast iron, bakelite, decoupage and textiles. Enjoy the selection of teas and partake of lunch or light refreshments, served with olde-worlde charm. Devonshire Tea is the house specialty or indulge in a Traditional High Tea. Between February 2014 and August 2015, Bygone Beautys undertook major extensions and renovations including a new museum space featuring more than 5,500 teapots (some debuting publically for the first time), function room, formal tearoom and retail area specialising in all things tea-related. The revamp has been steeped to perfection and is now ready to savour. Museum Admission: $5.50 per person and is redeemable with an equivalent purchase in the tearooms or retail area.
