A view of the Tea & coffee warehouse in the Victorian Walk Gallery
Goods from around the world landed at London’s port. They were taken from the docks to the city’s many warehouses. Tea was imported from China, India and Ceylon; cocoa and coffee from Africa and South America. After being graded and weighed, tea was blended, and coffee roasted and ground for distribution to grocers, tea rooms and hotels.

The ‘Victorian Walk’ uses original
shopfronts and objects from the Museum’s collection to capture the atmosphere of London life at the close of the 19th century –
a shopping arcade, a barber’s, a bank manager’s and clerk’s offices, a public bar, a back alley of warehouses and workshops.
