London’s Silent Museum, 18 Folgate Street: Dennis Severs House

In the heart of London’s historic East End, where the streets are still cobbled, and Jack The Ripper walking tours wander the night, one of London’s most eccentric museum experiences is hidden behind the doors of 18 Folgate Street.

London Calling: Victoria And Albert MuseumΒ
