Visit to Dennis Severs’ House
Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street near Liverpool Street Station is a still-life drama created by the previous owner as an historical imagination of what life would have been like inside for a family of Huguenot silk weavers. Its creator, Dennis Severs, was an artist who used his visitors’ imaginations as his canvas. He lived in the house as its original occupants would have done in the early 18th century. To enter the door silently is to pass through the frame of a painting, one with a time and life of its own. This is an inspiring experience.
