When you visit London you will surely go to Greenwich and discover some great London museums. The Fan Museum is the first and only museum in the world devoted in its entirety to all aspects of the ancient art and craft of the fan. It has been described as “an architectural and artistic gem”, and as “an oasis of tranquillity”. A delightful and genteel museum, situated in the heart of historic Greenwich and housing a collection of over 3500, mainly antique, fans.
The buildings are themselves historically interesting and date from 1721. Lovingly restored this is a super place to spend a few hours and enjoy a relaxing tea in the elegant orangery when you visit London.
