The Fan Museum, in Greenwich, challenges central London hotels (where afternoon tea hovers around £30-£40) with a simple, delicious home-made menu under £10 and a stunning Georgian townhouse environment.

Head to the quirky Fan Museum in Greenwich for the best £10 Afternoon Tea in London. Admission is £3 to see the highly collectable fans, and afternoon tea in the lovely Georgian Orangery, with scones and cake is a mere £6.

The Fan Museum is a short walk from the Greenwich overground / DLR station and the Greenwich, Cutty Sark DLR station. The museum is located on Croom’s Hill, almost opposite the Greenwich Theatre. There are guided tours (including admission £5) and fan-making workshops – just bring wrapping paper to start (admission £20). There are 4000 fans in the collection, ranging from a 13th century Chinese model to a strangely modern Dyson. The museum’s owner makes the fruity jam on your scones, and the cake is home-made too. Lovely! (Thanks to the Holiday Goddesses @holidaygoddess on Twitter for inspiration).
