Paying a Visit to The Geffrye, Museum of the Home in London!

Ga-Ga for The Geffrye!

Here's John outside London's wonderful and tucked-away Geffrye, Museum of the Home. The museum sits within a magical building that was once an 18th-century almshouse.

Gang:

John and I are lucky enough to visit London several times each year, and we are always hitting off-the-beaten paths spots such as far-flung museums and great houses. Think Syon Park, Dulwich Picture Gallery, and the Leighton House Museum

Our latest discovery is the amazing Geffrye, Museum of the Home, tucked-away in London’s increasingly hip Shoreditch neighborhood. Housed within a stunning 18th-century almshouse, the museum boasts a series of period rooms that date from 1600 until today. Plus, there is a lovely herb garden. And the museum is free.

John and I lapped up the Christmas-decorated spaces, including the living room from 1935, the parlour from 1790, and the hall circa-1630.

Next time you are in London, be sure to add The Geffrye to your must-visit list, it’s truly a treat! And after your tour, walk over to the nearby Spitalfields Traders Market for the flea market and wonderful restaurants…
