Talks and tours

The restored almshouse at the Geffrye Museum will be open for London Open House 2018

Restored almshouse 

The Geffrye is now closed for a transformational, two-year development. 

Although the main museum building and period gardens are closed, there are still plenty of reasons to come to the Geffrye. Throughout closure we will run a programme of events and activities in our front gardens. The restored almshouse is also open for tours on certain dates throughout the year. You can also find out about talks and tours organised by the Friends of the Geffrye here.

Britain vs France

Saturday 26, Sunday 27 and Monday 28 May, 5.30pm

It wasn’t so long ago that British cheese was the poor relation of the international cheeseboard, but not any more. A new generation of bright young British producers are creating new cheeses that can more than hold their own on their international stage.

See just how far we have come for yourself with an expert tasting hosted by food writer and World Cheese Awards judge Patrick McGuigan at the London Cheese Project – a three-day cheese festival at the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton.
