Dennis Severs' House ToursA guided tour of Dennis Severs' House is one of the must-see attractions of hidden London. The living museum, the brainchild of eccentric designer and performer, Dennis Sever, captures, in a series of evocative snapshots, 18th century life as experienced by a family of Huguenot silk weavers. Built in 1724, the red-brick Georgian terraced house has been transformed into evocative tableaux vivants designed to draw the visitor into another world and another all-encompassing experience. Smells, sounds, and sensations suck visitors deeper into each tableau, enabling them to piece together every scene to produce a living creation. This historic gem deserves to be experienced as the creator intended - in silence and with an open mind. There's no booking required for the Sunday afternoon tours (12noon-4pm) or for the tours on the first and third Mondays of the month between 12noon and 2pm. However, if you want to experience the 'Silent Night' tours, for the full candlelight experience, you do need to book in advance. This tour lasts 45 minutes and runs between 6-9pm.
