Special family-friendly tours of the restored 18th century almshouse will also be on offer, giving a rare glimpse into the lives of London's poor and elderly in former times (adults £5, children free).

Check out the daily schedule of activities here.

As the museum is now closed until 2020, most of the activities will take place outside - either on the lawn or under a big canopy - so come prepared for the weather!

Drinks and light refreshments will be available to buy or bring a picnic to eat on the lawn.

Children under 11 must be accompanied at all times by an adult.  Many of the workshops are drop-in. Booking for timed workshops opens 30 minutes in advance of each session and places are first-come first served, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Workshops will run in August only:

  • Thursdays 16, 23 and 30
  • Fridays 17, 24 and 31

Time: 10 am - 4.30 pm

Earlier Event: August 14
