Unlock the Geffrye Museum with us. Located in Hoxton, the Geffrye Museum is a heritage building nestled in a trendy central-east London neighbourhood. The Grade I listed 19th Century almshouses, surrounded by tranquil gardens in Hoxton, exploring the theme of home and home life. Its focus is on the urban, particularly the London middle classes, showing the changing style of English domestic interiors from 1600 to the present day.
The Geffrye Museum is currently undergoing an £18 million development project and will be reopening early 2020. This limits the hireable indoor spaces in the short term; however, the elegant panelled Georgian room is open throughout.

Without the generosity of Sir Robert Geffrye, the almshouses would never have been built at all. Knighted in 1673, Geffrye had many responsibilities and titles including Sheriff of London and Lord Mayor. As he had no heir, he left his wealth to a number of charities including the founding of the Geffrye almshouses which in 1914 were re-opened as a museum. You will find a replica of an original 1723 statue of Sir Robert Geffrye adorning the front of the almshouses which bear his name.
