Osterley Park House

Osterley Park House was entirely redesigned by architect Robert Adam over a period of twenty years beginning in 1761 on behalf of the Childs family.   Although the the house is not entirely full of artifacts, it is one of the most sumptuous that I have visited.  The gardens can be found here and the flowers here.    Admission times, prices and further information can be found here.

Unfortunately the upstairs rooms were closed during my visit, but here are the downstairs rooms.  The lighting was little dull in places, so it has been raised a little.

Geffrye Museum – Interiors

The Geoffrye Museum is very close to Hoxton station on the London Overground Line.   There is a front and back garden area, which is worth seeing, and entrance to the museum is free.    The interior has a long row of rooms which depict interior decor and furniture throughout the ages.  There is also an exhibition area in the basement and one may join a tour of a small Alms House exhibit.

Here is a taste of the museum.
