Twinings and Co is passionate about the drink that keeps Britain going. Opened in 1706, during the golden age of the coffee house, selling tea began as a PR stunt. 300 years later it’s still going strong. It is the oldest shop in the City of Westminster, trading on the same site with the same family, and the same product, tea and coffee. With a fascinating small museum too, this lovely heritage shop celebrates a huge variety of delicious teas. And although dry tea is great, wet tea is better – who knew?! The new Loose Tea bar even lets you sniff your tea before you buy.
The museum is open to the public and tea tastings are available during opening hours. Tea Experiences are available by appointment. Please contact the store or visit twinings.co.uk for more information.

Monday-Friday 9.30 to 19.00
