The London Pass London Pass Benefits: Access to Benjamin Franklin House with a London Pass Normally £8.00 - Included with London Pass

Visit the historic former residence of one of America's Founding Fathers at the Benjamin Franklin House in Central London.

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, which is now the site of a student science centre, is the only remaining residence of Benjamin Franklin and is widely recognised as being the leading centre for studies related to Franklin.

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. You can also visit another London attraction, the Scholarship Centre, which houses a full set of Franklin’s papers.

The Historical Experience lasts approximately 45 minutes and covers three floors of the 18th century building. Architectural tours last approximately 25 minutes and emphasise the history of the building.

"We found that the things we wanted to see in London were covered by the London Pass. We heard of the London Pass when we were arranging our BritRail Pass and we investigated how much it would cost to see everything we wanted. We found the convenience of the pass and the cost far outweighed just showing up at the venues and lining up for tickets. We even went to a few venues we didn't have on our "must see" list. Great value...would purchase again & recommend it to others."
