Those joining from the Bloomsbury-Shoreditch ride do so here.

Take the first right into Crondall Street. At Hoxton Street, turn right and immediately left into Falkirk Street, at the end of which is the junction with Kingsland Road (traffic lights). If you are not visiting the Museum of the Home and St Mary's Garden Project, continue straight across into Cremer Street, passing Hoxton Station and turn left at the end into Hackney Road.

If you are visiting the Museum of the Home, cross Kingsland Road and then walk northwards towards the left. The museum is on the right, with the entrance to the gardens to the left of the main building. There is cycle parking in the gardens.


The Museum of the Home, previously known as the Geffrye Museum, is set in the former almshouses of the Ironmongers' Company. In 1992 a derelict site adjacent to the museum was transformed into an award-winning herb garden with over 170 different herbs and plants traditionally associated with herb gardens, such as roses, honeysuckle and lilies. In 1998 the gardens behind the almshouses were laid out as a series of period garden rooms to show the changing nature of English town gardens over the last 400 years.
