The Geffrye Museum which is located on Kingsland Road in London is closed for two years for the redevelopment. It boasts of restored almshouses which are open for tours on specific days. A visit to these almshouses from the 18th century will give you a better insight into how the poor and the elderly of London lived in the 1780s. Apart from the captivating displays of the living rooms, you will also have the pleasure of viewing the beautiful gardens right in the centre of London.
