Take a journey back in time, inside two of London's most magical and atmospheric museum houses, Dennis Severs' House at 18 Folgate Street and the Museum of Immigration at 19 Princelet Street.

Starting with a visit to Dennis Severs' House, a powerful yet intimate evocation of the lives of an imaginary family of Huguenot Silk Weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. You will wander in silence through the house's ten rooms, each lit by fire and candlelight. After a short stroll through Spitalfields, you will be guided around 19 Princelet Street, an extraordinary building which commemorates the waves of migration to Spitalfields over the centuries, and which hides an extraordinary secret in its garden.

As 19 Princelet Street prepares for a major fundraising and development campaign, this is a rare opportunity to explore the building that has been described as 'one of the most charismatic, moving, beautiful places in all London.'
