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, 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 one hour and covers 3 floors of the 18th century building. Monday tours emphasise the architectural history of the building.
Please note: Closed on 24 - 29 & 1 January 2017

"The London Pass along with the travel pass gave me the freedom to see everything I wanted to see when I was in London. The travel was exceptionally easy and the fact that everything was prepaid allowed me to be worry free about having enough money set back for admissions and travel. I would recommend the use of the London Pass to anyone travelling to London. I will certainly use it on my next trip!"
