Flagstaff House is a two-storey building tucked among the trees in verdant Hong Kong Park. Today, it’s the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, but originally, it was the office and residence of the commander of the British Forces in Hong Kong. Created in 1846, the stately, columned structure is also the oldest Western building remaining in the city,  and one of its oldest pieces of Greek Revival architecture.

The tea museum is home to exhibitions, of course, but also a variety of programming dedicated to ceramics and tea drinking culture such as lectures, demonstrations, and social gatherings.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it’s also a popular spot for wedding photos.
