Dennis Severs' House

18 Folgate Street
Shoreditch, London
E1 6BX
Tel: 020 7247 4013 Liverpool Street 0.4 miles

Step back in time and shock your senses at number 18 Folgate Street in London's Spitalfields. The house's creator was artist Dennis Severs who lived in the house as its inhabitants would have done in the 18th century. He created the fictional Jervis family whose things, including half-eaten meals, chamber pots and discarded clothes fill the house. The tour, conducted in silence, takes visitors back to the period 1724 to 1914 and bombards their senses with the sights, sounds and scents of the era. Tours are only available a few days a month. Not suitable for children.

Dennis Severs' House reviews

Amazing place! As soon as I stepped into the house I felt like I'd entered another world, centuries ago. The scents, candle lit rooms, authentic furniture, spider webs; it all gave the house extraordinary atmosphere. Highly recommended.
