Dennis Severs' HouseThe brainchild of eccentric designer and performer, Dennis Severs' House at 18 Folgate Street captures, in a series of evocative snapshots, 18th century life as experienced by a family of Huguenot silk weavers. Built in 1724, Severs transformed each individual room within the red-brick Georgian terraced house into evocative tableaux vivants designed to draw the visitor into another world and another all-encompassing experience. Visitors or guests are invited to explore, in total silence - by fire or candlelight - each of the ten rooms. Smells, sounds, and sensations suck visitors deeper into each tableau, enabling them to piece together every scene to produce a living creation. This historic gem deserves to be experienced as the creator intended - in silence and with an open mind.

Best for:
Candles and creativity, 18th century atmosphere and ambience, history brought to life.

Also known as:
18 Folgate Street
