The Geffrye Museum online: information and bookings

The Geffrye is one of London's most friendly and enjoyable museums. Set in beautiful 18th century almshouses just north of the City of London, the museum shows the changing style of the English domestic interior from 1600 to the present day through a series of period rooms. The displays lead the visitor on a walk through time, from the 17th century with oak furniture and panelling, past the refined splendour of the Georgian period and the high style of the Victorians, to 20th century modernity.

During the summer months, the museum displays are complemented by an award-winning walled herb garden and a series of period gardens which highlight the key changes in town gardens from 1600 to 1900.

The museum and gardens are regularly brought to life through an innovative programme of special exhibitions, seminars, workshops, drama and music.
