Lovely museum of the English domestic interior in Hoxton. As well as permanent galleries showcasing the English home it has rotating exhibitions and a lovely herb garden. The gardens in front of the museum are a great green space for when it’s sunny in London. Free entry.

British Museum free talks

The Changing Face of Money is a free 45 minute talk in Room 68 of the British Museum at 13.15 today.

The British Museum do a fantastic set of free gallery talks every day including later on Friday evenings. They are all given by volunteers or museum staff. The quality varies but occasionally you get a talk by an incredibly passionate and knowledgeable historian who really brings the subject to life in a way that staring at dusty artefacts can’t.
