One of the worlds largest collections of novelty teapots can be found at the fascinating Teapot Museum in Conwy, North Wales. The museum was established by Paul and Christine Gibbs back in 1989 and now houses over 1000 different teapots.
We also particulary loved this ode to a cup of tea that hangs there:
"When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance
There is solace in its taste
And then laden moments vanish
Somehow into space
And the world becomes a lovely thing
There's beauty as you'll see
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea".
