Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.


04 December - 06 December
Organized by: The Garden Museum
5 Lambeth Palace Rd

Beautiful & Useful is back for another weekend of festive shopping, and once again we’re filling the Museum with a carefully curated selection of our favourite designers, artists and makers.


Skip the hectic high street and support small, independent businesses this Christmas, all in the warm, serene surroundings of the Garden Museum in Lambeth. At Beautiful & Useful you’ll find gifts that are made with care, and meet the makers themselves to hear their stories.


The award-winning Garden Café will also be open serving seasonal, ingredient-led lunch, drinks and refreshments.

  Ticket info

Please note that tickets are limited to this year’s Beautiful & Useful Craft Fair in order to maintain social distancing, and are available by online pre-booking only. Please arrive at the beginning of your time slot as you must leave by the end of the hour. If you wish to visit the Garden Café or spend time in the Museum’s garden, you may do this in addition to your hour in the craft fair.


As a Covid-19 safe venue we are able to continue with our events programme and the Beautiful & Useful Craft Fair will be going ahead with added measures to ensure everyone’s safety. Please do not arrange to meet friends or relatives outside of your household or support bubble.


Please read our Visitors’ Charter and Q&As for the measures we’ve put in place to ensure your visit to the Museum is safe and enjoyable.
