  • Went yesterday with five friends not really knowing what to expect but would strongly recommend a visit. The stairs are a bit daunting but it's strange to see how people lived with so little light. Th...  more »
  • I came on a Wednesday around 18:00 without reservation to visit Dennis severs' House - no problem, it is open from 17:00 h, and it silently in the concept of the House - the rooms gave it no queue - as already described pass through, no photos, nothing touched - trained, 15 facilitates BP admission and enters the building. The only indication of start: Start In the basement. Candles are stylish (very minimal) and gas lamps for illumination used in fireplaces there are either wood or coal. Who can look bad in the dark, it has not easily become accustomed's somewhat on the dimly lit, but: dark is dark. I recommend you therefore visit during daylight for the visually impaired. If you don't hear the tube was in the basement and ground floor there / could feel or noisy modern noise from out there, the illusion of time travel would be better - not to mention the fact that in some corners of each room anachronistic objects have crept: labels that clearly too "young" look, bottles or other objects. A very well hidden sound system but also sounds and voices are recorded horse hooves - paving, cough, sighing and breathing (which left me in the dark cellar/kitchen area for 2 seconds real hair); Church bells. I would pleased if Dennis Severs and his successors had such consistently pulled through the basic idea of the room / house as a time capsule and set up the periods per floor, as well as not so after "Now but really doll" completed the decoration of furniture. It is sometimes slightly to gefrachtet. Additionally that there "Do you get the picture?" it's are quite often undezente note note - - I thought the whole thing live by the motto, either you see it or not. A real live cat lives left end in the premises - you only have to see her - I found it rolled up to the NAP actually in one of the rooms!

  • We took our USA friends on a journey back to the 1820's with an hour creeping through the 'locked in time' Dennis Seavers house. My second experience so I could linger longer in each room and take in ...  more »

  • Unique experience; the sites, smells, and sounds made you feel like you were back in the 1700s and 1800s. I'd recommend to go at night by candle light and when it's less busy. Would've been nice not to have so many people around to get the full effect.
  • Bizarre, quirky and odd. Read the plot summary on the website before you go . It will help. Worth a look . Go after you have early lunch at Dishoom around the corner.
  • Unlike anything I've done before. You walk around in silence and the place is lit by candles only. It feels like you've stepped back in time and the residents will be back soon. The rooms are amazing with sounds and smells present. No photos are allowed and it's not a good idea to big large bags with you.
  • Hands down the best museum and cultural experience in London. This museum is always my top recommendation to any London bound tourists or even locals looking for something a bit different to do
  • Amazing place, now sadly without the presence of the ever-argumentative Mr Severs
