It always seems like this blog is trying to find the winner of the “World’s Tiniest Museum” – whether it’s the Red Telephone Box Museum or Musée-Placard d’Erik Satie or the Micro-Mµseum or the Hoosesagg Museum, there’s some stiff competition all over the world. Well, it looks like we might have to add another contestant with a teeny tiny gem hidden away amongst the hustle and bustle of central London. The Twinings Tea Shop & Museum is really more tea shop than museum. There are just a few display cases in which visitors can see the original copy of Twinings’ Royal Warrant granted by Queen Victoria in 1837 along with a selection of vintage tea caddies and historic packages. But this long and narrow building is worth seeing for other reasons. Not only is it London’s first tearoom (300 years old next year, ladies and gents!), but Twinings is one of London’s oldest businesses as the company’s been located at this address since 1706. So there you go. You must pay your respects to this itty bitty tea museum next time you’re in London.
