Dennis Sever's House

Dennis Sever's house in Spitalfields, London is described as 'a breathtaking and intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the twentieth century'. Visitors tour this atmospheric house in silence. The rooms are lit by fire and candlelight, and it is as if the occupants have just stepped outside. We will have the added bonus of seeing the house decorated for the Christmas season.
