People looking for things to do in London could opt for a visit to the Benjamin Franklin House - the world's only remaining Franklin home.

It was in this abode that Benjamin Franklin, the great scientist, diplomat, philosopher, inventor, Founding Father of the US and more, lived, thought and invented between 1757 and 1775.

Visitors will love the Historical Experience - an interactive exhibit which presents the excitement and uncertainty of Franklin's London years.

It uses the rooms in which Franklin lived as a performance space to tell the intriguing story of his life, integrating live performance, state-of-the-art lighting and sound and visual projection.

While lodging at the impressive abode, Franklin had a number of roles which shaped the world. He mediated the unrest between Britain and America, was the Deputy Postmaster for the Colonies and pursued his love of science.

He explored a number of life-changing inventions including bifocal spectacles, inoculation and air baths.
