The Fan Museum is dedicated to the history of handheld fans and the craft of fan making, with a collection of more than 3,000 specimens from all over the world, some dating from the eleventh century. Housed in a pair of restored Georgain townhouses, only a small proportion of the collection is on display at any one time and it is rotated every four months or so. If you can come on a Tuesday or Sunday afternoon you can also take tea in the elegant Orangery. Fan-making workshops and temporary exhibitions are also held at the Fan Museum –see the website for details.

The Fan Museum is beautifully placed at the bottom of the park and has a fascinating collection. Do go and have tea in the magically painted garden room... with 'views' across Greenwich... The tea itself was a little disappointing: no sandwiches, and the cakes were not great 'bake off' standard, but the 'event' was just being in this lovely room. I am planning to visit again in the summer - when hopefully I can enjoy another (hopefully upgraded) afternoon tea after a walk in the park...
