Walking through the staged and atmospheric rooms was like a cross between a period drama and a conceptual art installation. Whiffs of coal smoke, sounds from the past and the rumble of the Central Line beneath our feet added to the ambience. The candlelight and...More

Denis Severs created this “memories of a house” art installation to give the feel of walking into the past and it’s not a museum, but an immersive and evocative place that is unique. Reminiscent of “pioneer village” and living history displays, you are asked to...More

Very well preserved house/museum takes you back into 18th century. Loads of small detail and quite few rooms to visit with variety of displays, you would have to visit the place to understand the true feel of it.

I'd read about this house in "The Marvels" and had been longing to visit it for a couple of years. Not too many attractions can stand up to that kind of delayed gratification but I was completely charmed. I booked our tickets online and there...More

An experience. Travel through time in this well done "remake" of a Georgian / Victorian house. Be aware you may have to wait to get in as the house can only hold so many people at one time. Not really a place for kids. All...More

It was really an impressive display. It may not be for everyone because you have to really engage with the space and the surroundings. Many people may not like that you have to be quiet and turn off the phone. Each level is a different...More

Unfortunately, the experience was NOT what was expected after waiting in the cold for quite some time. Somehow nothing seemed authentic so the living quarters lost their credibility. There was no leaflet or brochure to guide the guests through the house except for the one...More

The house and objects within it were amazing! Under candlelight we explored the rooms on four floors. Loved every room for different reasons, however, it should not be described as a ‘tour’ as no one talked/ walked us through it (which to be fair, was...More

Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

It'd spoil the experience to have your camera out - the whole point is you're stepping back in time

I believe that reservations are required and that those reservations are at night. It does look cool at nighttime. The darkness helps the ambiance too. :)
