Adopt an actor at Shakespeare's Globe

Published: Monday 2nd of June 2008

What Edward Bramah, founder of the Bramah Museum of Tea and Coffee, did not know about two of the world's most popular beverages was arguably not worth knowing about.

Mr Bramah, who died in January this year, dedicated his life to sharing his enthusiasm for tea and coffee and educating people about the role they played in the world's thirst-quenching heritage.

Although the Southwark-based museum opened in 1992, its genesis came while Mr Bramah, having recently finished his National Service with the Royal Navy, was working on a Malawian tea plantation in the 1950s.

Mr Bramah decided to train as a tea taster with J Lyons and Co, later switching to a coffee brokerage firm which took him to Tanzania and Kenya, according to his obituary in the Independent.

London Pass holders can receive free admission to the Bramah Museum of Tea and Coffee.

Top London attractions which are nearby and may interest London Pass holders include the Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition.
