A unique experience, wandering round in requested silence, a home showing 200 years of wealth & poverty. The process of allowing your mind to take in the visual, audible & scents of each room you pass through is clever and provokes thought. Although you are...More

It was great to visit this house, especially in silence. I loved everything about, the smells, the displays, the atmosphere, the candle light. I really recommend it.

I can see why this house would interesting to certain people, but I just dont see the price point... It said you need 45 mins to explore, but I was out in 10. You either see it or you dont. I didn't. But polite staff.

One must look at this house as an art installation and not an historic house, which can be confusing if that's the idea you have as you walk through the front door. A true step back in time (personally a bit messy housekeeping) however the...More

I really wanted to love this experience. I loved the idea of it all - a home frozen in time, stripped of anything modern, oozing history and story and questions. I even loved the way I discovered it: I just zoomed into our hotel's location...More

This is a work of art; it's an artist's very personal conception of a historical home - and like a lot of art, your impression of it will be subjective. My impression was less museum or time capsule, and more like a cluttered antiques store....More

We took the 'Silent Night' tour and it was an interesting experience. It was nice to walk around a place in total silence and really take it all in - not being able to take photos also probably adds to the experience. The tour follows...More

No booking needed on a Monday at lunch time. You'll have to wait outside the door - there is no space inside to accommodate waiting guests, which is understandable, but not very comfortable on a wet and windy day like today! I enjoyed the house...More

Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

It'd spoil the experience to have your camera out - the whole point is you're stepping back in time

I believe that reservations are required and that those reservations are at night. It does look cool at nighttime. The darkness helps the ambiance too. :)
