The Geffrye Museum

disabled access

The Geffrye focuses on the urban living rooms and gardens of the English middle classes. Our collections show how homes have been used and furnished over the past 400 years, reflecting changes in society and behaviour as well as style, fashion and taste.

A series of period rooms lead visitors on a walk through time from 17th century oak furniture and panelling, past muted Georgian elegance and eclectic Victorian style, to 20th century modernity and contemporary living.

These rooms are complemented by a sequence of period gardens and a walled herb garden which illustrate the role of the garden in home life. The gardens are open from April to October.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
