Front Garden

Exterior of the Geffrye Museum in autumn - photography Jayne Lloyd

The Geffrye is set in beautiful 18th-century almshouse buildings surrounded by tranquil gardens, which provide a much-needed green space in the inner city and a welcoming space for visitors. 

We are sorry but dogs are not permitted inside the gardens, unless they are guide dogs.

The front gardens remain open while the main museum is closed until spring 2020 for our transformational development project.

Front garden opening hours

Monday - Friday 7.30am - dusk

Please note the front gardens are closed for maintenance on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 January 2019
