Dennis Severs' Tour


Reimagined by the gentle author Thursday, Saturday & Sunday evenings

    Drawing upon newly-discovered recordings and unpublished writings by Dennis Severs, The Gentle Author of Spitalfields Life has recreated the famously evocative tours that Dennis gave after he first opened his house in 1980.

    Limited to a small number of guests at a time, this intimate tour offers an unforgettable experience.

Silent Visit


Saturday & Sunday afternoons Concessions available

    An unguided tour through the House without speaking explored at your own pace. 18 Folgate Street is famous for the quality of its silence enlivened by ticking clocks, and crackling fires. When there is no chatter, you grow more aware of fragrances – perfume, wood smoke and oranges. Compounded by the intricate visual detail, this is an intense experience for all the senses. This tour takes place during daylight hours.
