Imagine being a guest in a house owned by a family of 18th century silk weavers just minutes from Liverpool Street station. Sound absurd? Dennis Severs’ house does just that. You are invited to participate in a ‘still life drama’, a concept invented by Dennis Severs, an artist intent upon using people’s imaginations to create a unique cultural experience. Visitors to this charming Georgian townhouse are left to explore the ten rooms in silence using their senses as a guide. The house is open Sundays noon-4pm and Mondays noon-2pm and ticket prices are £7. Alternatively, book for a candlelit ‘silent night visit’ on a Monday or Wednesday 6-9pm for £14 and enjoy a glass of champagne included in your ticket price.
