Teapot Island is a most unusual visitor attraction and is well suited to England and its love of tea. Over the centuries we have so enjoyed this drink that we have developed teapots to celebrate different events, fashion and changing times.

Teapot Island opened its doors in April 2003 and is a small family run business. It holds two awards in the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of teapots they own. Whilst the collection is continuing to grow it is currently at about 6,700.

Teapot Island started life in the 1950’s as a tin shack which sold bait to fishermen and provided them with cups of tea. The café has developed a lot and is no longer a tin shack but serves a wide range of different food, a selection of ice creams and cream teas. The cream teas are divine with homemade scones, baked daily, homemade jam and real Cornish clotted cream. This of course comes with a nice pot of tea!

A small charge is made for entry to the Teapot exhibition and a gift shop enables you to buy a memento of your visit.

Potter Gary Seymour of Seymour Designs makes teapots and other ceramic on site and you can purchase a variety of goods from his workshop. Alternatively there is also the paint shop where you can paint your own pottery, and children can create their own masterpieces. These creations can be fired on site, making them dishwasher safe and suitable for everyday use at home. 

Teapot Island is situated alongside the River Medway with good walks in both directions or it is simply a pleasant place to spend the afternoon watching the world and his boat go by.
