Always on the hunt for slow places to explore in London? The next place to add to your list this summer is Beautiful Allotment at The Geffrye Museum in Hoxton. This English country garden-style drinking and eating space has been brought to us by Bourne & Hollingsworth, the creative lifestyle company who work hard to create unique pop-ups and interiors-led social spaces.
Set in the beautiful courtyard of the Geffrye Museum, this planty pop-up is a serene escape from busy Shoreditch around the corner. Place your drinks order at the wooden pottings sheds. Then, choose from sofas, day beds, poly tunnels, deck chairs, and even a treehouse, to sip on their botanical-inspired cocktails and tuck into their locally-sourced BBQ food. You can spend the afternoon nestled amongst vegetable patches and hay bales, watching volunteer gardeners slowly make their way around the gardens, tending to the tomatoes and rainbow chard. It’s rustic with an informal atmosphere, perfect for a relaxed get-together with friends.
