Venue hire at Benjamin Franklin House

 

Benjamin Franklin House

Hire this venue for your own event - it has six function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 50 guests and the smallest is ideal for 10.

This Georgian terraced house was the London base of the great American statesman and key founder of the United States, Benjamin Franklin between 1757 and 1775. Benjamin Franklin House was essentially the first American Embassy, as Franklin struggled to contain the growing enmity between England and her colony. In his spare time, the great man pursued his own interests, including meeting the great men and women of the day and working on inventions - including bifocal spectacles, a new musical instrument and a fuel-saving stove. The house itself has been recreated as a 'Historical Experience'. Visitors receive a guided tour from Polly, Franklin's landlady's daughter, accompanied by appropriate sound effects and visuals, while Emmy-award winning actor Peter Coyote plays the part of Benjamin Franklin.
