Step back 300 entrepreneurial years at The Dennis Severs Museum 

 

 

Take this opportunity to visit a unique home, museum, piece of artwork and meet the entrepreneurial ghosts of another era - this experience will leave you spellbound. The artist, Dennis Severs wrote of the house:
“The house’s ten rooms harbour ten ‘spells’ that engage the visitor’s imagination in moods that dominated the periods between 1724 - 1914. Your senses are your guide”.

Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is an entrepreneurial time capsule and some! It follows an intimate journey throughout the centuries of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. Follow their fortunes through the generations in this breathtaking multi-story town house close to Liverpool Street Station. Take in the sights, smells and sounds of the house as the family (who have just fled) welcome you into their lives against the back drop of ticking clocks, horses hooves on cobbles and the quiet chatter of passers by. Immerse yourself in the stillness of this architectural delight and take solace in each of the multiple rooms which demonstrate how the family would have lived across the generations.

 

It was the artist Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house you are stepping through a looking glass into another world exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

  

Afterwards you can share the experience, if you choose, with fellow Guild members and their guests over a pay as you go glass or two of wine and maybe a  supper at a local eatery, you’ll have plenty to talk about! Both are situated within a stone’s throw of Liverpool Street Station.

 

 Ticket prices for the tour are £17 pp

 

**The tour consists of multiple levels in a listed four story building. Unfortunately there is no disabled access or lift.
