Geffrye Museum

Located in Shoreditch the Geffrye Museum is one of London’s lesser known gems. I spoke to Curator Alex Goddard about the museum’s annual Christmas exhibition and where all of our festive traditions came from.

    Throughout my summer holidays as a child (say from 9-10. I was allowed to go to the Geffreye Museum during the Summer Holidays.

    I had the most fantastic time. Dressing Up, doing crosswords, Playing with Clay and making animals, hats and basket-weaving.

    The day I dressed as an Elizabeth Woman, I thought it was wonderful and it has given me a love of the 16th Century throughout my adult years. I have read many book on Elizabeth 1 – what a woman!!

    Thanks to all who helped my summer holidays become a fascinating, happy and joyful time – with lots to do.
