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...
