  • Neat place, off the beaten path. Many beautiful fans on display, and entrance fee was very reasonable. Staff was friendly. I was given a little info binder to help me understand the exhibits. It is fairly small, so more of a short visit. They have a gift shop and orangerie as well.

  • One of the cheapest places in London to get high tea, dining area was very nice. Beautiful artwork, very nice/attentive waitresses, ALL the food was DELICIOUS. Museum itself was a little dull, only takes about 10ish minutes to go through & you paid for it so why not.

  • Great place to visit especially when it rains. National Trust members get in for half price. Enjoy a delicious afternoon tea down stairs in the Orangery for only £8.

  • Small but interesting museum, will teach you all you need to know about fans. Takes just under an hour to explore. Would recommend afternoon tea in the orangey, delicious cakes, scenic garden view, unfortunately you can't enter the garden, cost not too expensive, booking recommended for the tea. Good way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Helpful and friendly staff.

  • Great little museum, cheap to get in and they serve a nice afternoon tea most days of the week, but would recommend checking their website before going. Museum is small, doesn't really take long to go around the whole thing.
