Benjamin Franklin House in central London - the historic residence for one of the Founding Fathers of America.
Located on Craven Street, just a short walk from Trafalgar Square, this historical building dates from circa 1730 and was the residence of Benjamin Franklin in London between 1757 and 1775, during which time this extraordinary man was involved with mediation between America and Britain as well as his groundbreaking scientific studies.
The House is the only remaining residence of Benjamin Franklin and is widely is open to the public as a dynamic museum and educational facility.
Visitors to the House can experience first hand what life was like for Benjamin Franklin in London in the 1700s through the ‘Historical Experience’, an attraction that lets you feel the atmosphere of the time and explore the complex and interesting life of one of the Founding Fathers of the United States Of America.
The Historical Experience lasts approximately 45 minutes and is a timed show in English that incorporates three flights of stairs. Unfortunately there is no disabled access and visitors should be aware that some of the original floorboards and central staircase might be uneven and poorly lit.
On Mondays there is an Architectural Tour which incorporates details about the history and architecture of the building, including a special demonstration of Franklin’s musical invention, the Glass Armonica.
