Nestled in the picturesque village of Leura, Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum and Tearooms is home to the world's largest private teaware collection.

Their showroom displays more than 5,500 teapots from all over the world, spanning five centuries from Australia, America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

From the old to the new, elegant to outrageous, miniature to large, this collection includes rare, unusual and collectable teapots, as well as iconic designs from various eras. Different materials are used, including china, silver, silver plate, pottery, fine porcelain, cast iron, bakelite, decoupage and textiles.

Bygone Beauty's also has a retail store, which includes over 100 varieties of teas and infusions, various tea related items, jewellery, antiques and collectables for sale. It's the perfect place to find that one-of-a-kind gift or memorable keep-sake.

Once all that is done and dusted, treat yourself to lunch, light refreshments or sample a variety of teas in their tearooms. I went with their speciality Devonshire Tea two home-made scones with freshly whipped cream and strawberry jam, served with your choice of house tea or coffee.
