Dennis Severs House



Dennis Severs House

Dennis Severs unique heritage art house is here.

Location: 18 Folgate Street, London, E1 6BX

Description: This restored red-brick Georgian terraced house, built in 1724, was owned by American-born Dennis Severs, who died in 1999.

Here at 18 Folgate Street the eccentric designer and performer recreated a historical interior that takes the visitor on a journey from 1685-1919.

The rooms are set out as a series of 'tableaux vivants'. Visitors get the impression that the occupants have just slipped out for a moment: candles flicker, the table has the remains of a meal and the sound of horses' hooves outside.

Severs was renowned for ejecting visitors that did not seriously appreciate his recreations.

Today visitors take an individual wander around this unique house, in silence, to take in the atmosphere.

In Elder Street, just around the corner from Dennis Severs' House, are two of London's earliest surviving terraces, built in the 1720s. Many of these houses have been carefully restored.
