Teapot Island is a family run business that was established in Yalding in April 2003, housing the biggest collection of Teapots in England! With over 7600 teapots on display in our exhibition that is open to the public for a small charge.
We have over 2000 teapots for sale and also small mementos that you can purchase from our shop to take home with you to remind you of your day with us. (New online store coming soon ).
In 2004 we started supporting the Kent Air Ambulance via our 3 metre tall Wishing Well teapot and cup and we currently hold two Guinness World Record certificates.
There has been a cafe on this site since the 1950s. It started its life as a tin shack serving tea and selling bait to the fisherman. It has changed a lot since then and we now boast a bistro style cafe, with a wide variety of different types of food on our menu and a big selection of ice creams for you to enjoy. We are well known for our cream teas which boast scones, which are baked on the premises daily, real cornish clotted cream, our own homemade jam and not forgetting of course a pot of tea. We are also fully licensed and stock a vast array of alcoholic beverages.
The potter, Gary Seymour of Seymour Designs, designs and makes teapots and other items to sell which are on display outside his workshop on sunny days along with Gary who will take every chance to top up his tan.
We have paint your own pottery for sale that range from teddies to teapots, so you and your children can experience painting a masterpiece for yourself. All our items are fired on site so you can use them every day at home and you can put them in a dishwasher.
We can arrange for you to hold your child’s paint your own birthday party here which includes child’s main meal, dessert, drink, a visit to our exhibition and of course an item to paint.
We consider ourselves lucky to be situated alongside the river medway where you can enjoy walking along its banks to watch the wildlife at play or just sit outside in our tranquil garden and watch the world go by.
