Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms is nestled in the village of Leura within the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The tearooms and showrooms offer visitors a truly memorable experience – so don’t forget your camera! Home of world’s largest private collection of teawares, most items are on display in the Treasured Teapot Museum. 

The ultimate experience is to enjoy the famous silver service Traditional High Tea or the ever-popular Devonshire Tea in the Bygone Beautys Tearooms. Visitors can also purchase estate jewellery (gold, silver and diamonds), antiques, collectables and contemporary quality gifts - all scattered throughout the emporium

On most days you may catch the proprietor, Maurice Cooper OAM, (better known as The Teapot Man or Mr Teapot) serving customers at the front desk. Maurice will be easily recognisable wearing a bow tie, and will probably be in the midst of selling a diamond ring to a customer. Maurice and some of the staff are themselves great examples of Bygone Beautys!

To find us on foot from Leura Railway Station or, if driving to the Blue Mountains from Sydney, turn left off the Great Western Highway into Leura Mall. Go past the railway station, turn left into Railway Parade at the roundabout, then turn right into Grose Street. Continue straight ahead to the next corner and on your left you will find Bygone Beautys!

Please note: Bygone Beautys is currently undergoing major extensions and renovations to create a better experience for our visitors. This will include a dedicated museum space to display the teapots and other tea-related artefacts, a retail area specialising in all things tea-related and larger tearooms, including a formal tearoom and function room. Normal opening hours are still in place throughout this process. For prosperity and safety, many of the teapots have been packed away as they are worthy of protecting. The teapot collection will return in mid 2015 when the renovations are expected to be completed. Our sincere apologies for an any inconvenience.
