  • My son and I visited this magical experience on our last trip to London. It was very special. The idea is you are stepping thru the plane of a painting from another time, or visiting a different centu...  more »
  • I knew this art installation would be the highlight of my trip, and it was. The whole house is set out in amazing detail, and I truly felt that I was transported back in time, right down to the sound ...  more »
  • Shhhhhhh.... You enter this house in silence, no children allowed, no cell phones. Nothing that reminds you of the world you leave outside. Creaky boards link the four floors of the house of the Jerva...  more »

  • A really cool 'museum'. It is like being able to walk through someones house and look at all their things. You get a great feel of what life would be like just before the turn of the century. It is the exact opposite of a stately home tour and show how life would have been.
  • It's good to have a trip back in time but personally there are other places similar or even better. It's pricy for just 30 minutes visit.
  • Finding words to describe this place and experience is a little difficult. To describe it as a cross between an art installation, a time capsule and an hour in silence wandering around a dimly lit terrace house just doesn't do it justice. Highly recommended (if this is likely to be your kind of thing). We're likely to visit again in the future.
  • Not your usual museum, it bills itself as a still life setting. We visited just after Christmas, so the setting was still festive themed. The candlelight, fireplaces and smells of cooking really set the atmosphere for the visit.
  • I went with my wife and two teenage daughters. An interesting walk through time. For some reason not as inspiring as i thought it might be.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
