Benjamin Franklin House

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.

The site offers two types of tour (depending on day of visit). Lasting approximately 45 minutes, the Historical Experience lets you feel the atmosphere of the time and explore the complex life of one of the founding fathers of the United States of America.

The slightly shorter Architectural Tour explores the Georgian features of House, along with its fascinating history encompassing Franklin’s long residence (1757-1775), the Hewson anatomy school, and the comprehensive conservation project that saved it from dereliction.

The knowledgeable staff will talk visitors through the fascinating features of the House and answer any visitor questions during the tour.

"I would absolutely recommend buying the London Pass if you have 3 or more days to spend exploring London. Buy it ahead of time, online and research what is available and decide what attractions you might be interested in. A top 10 sort of thing, and then any others that might be of interest. It gives you the freedom to visit many popular sites without the hassle of standing in long lines for tickets. I also liked that I wasn't spending all kinds of money every day on attractions and money did not enter into my decisions on what I wanted to do since my admissions where already paid for. I very much enjoyed my visit in London and I think having the London Pass allowed me to see more than I would have, had I not had it. Thank you!!"
