Geffrye Museum

Set in elegant 18th century almshouses and surrounded by lush gardens, this East London gem tells the tale of the domestic life of the English middle-classes. Visitors can travel through time as they pass through a series of rooms, each creating a particular period – from 17th century oak panelling, through Georgian refinement to the high aestheticism of the Victorians. Each room features information on the arrangement of the typical household of the day, and you can listen to commentaries and even test the furniture to see how they lived back then. After you pass through the 20th century warehouse, a bright and convivial café awaits, and the shop stocks an eclectic array of books revolving around London stories and myths.
