The Geffrye Museum is currently closed for a major upgrade, but next month there will be a chance to go behind the hordings to see the building site.

A year ahead of the museum’s reopening in Spring 2020, you will be able to see the work in progress as 300-year-old spaces are being opened up to the public for the first time, alongside the creation of a new studio and learning pavilion.

The revamp is costing £18 million, and will expand the museum’s visitor capacity by 50 percent, while opening up space that is currently unused.

On offer are hard-hat tours with architects Wright & Wright. The tours will be led by the design team and will look at both the history and future of the site.

Tickets for the tours cost £10 and can be booked here.

There will be 5 tours on Saturday 22nd June, with capacity for 10 people per tour at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
