one of the most interesting and fascinating houses that i have ever been to – is dennis severs house in spitalfields. the 17C silkweavers house ,which has been lovingly restored as a typical working house, is an insight into life of that period and it certainly keeps your mind wondering. since severs has passed away the house has been beautifully maintained and continues to show in all its glory what life would have been like. – the grandeur of the wealthy, the darkness of the poor. its a museum, cum drama, cum personal collection – its just breathtaking – your eyes dart from corner to corner of each of the rooms on the 5 floors – absorbing the different scenarios, the different smells, the crackling of the open fires , the flickering of the candles- it really is a must visit and especially at xmas. why not buy a visit for a friend – they would just love it. think of art crossed with drama.
