Benjamin Franklin House

A guided visit to the only remaining house lived in by Benjamin Franklin.  The Historical Experience Tour uses the eighteenth century spaces to serve as a stage for a drama that seamlessly blends live interpretation and cutting edge sound, lighting and visual projection to tell the rich story of Franklin in London.

Tours at 12pm (sold out), 1pm and 2pm.

The house is just behind Charing Cross Station.  Please note there are 38 stairs and no lift.

TICKETS:  £7 standard: £6 concession (over 65) , £4 National Trust/Art Fund,  £3 Art Fund over 65, will be available from the Novermber lecture
