Catch the atmosphere of an earlier age on a visit to the historic Spitalfields quarter of east London. Dennis Severs, an American artist, lived in the Georgian terrace house 1979-99 much as the original occupants did in the early 18th century and the house is a time capsule of an imaginary family of Huguenot silk weavers. The ten rooms are lit with candles and fires and present a “still life drama” which is seen in silence. This visit will cost £15.
