Christmas at the Geffrye Museum

Not too late to catch the Geffrye Museum’s Christmas Past  which offers visitors a fascinating insight into how Christmas has been celebrated in English middle-class homes from 1600 to the present day. The rooms provide the perfect setting for visitors to explore the origins of some of the rich and colourful traditions of Christmases past, from feasting, dancing and kissing under the mistletoe to playing parlour games, hanging up stockings, sending cards, decorating the tree and throwing cocktail parties. 
Until Sunday 2 January 2011. Closed December 24, 25, 26 and January 1. The Geffrye Museum Next to Hoxton station on the East London Line
