Close by his only surviving home at 36 Craven
Street are places of national and historic importance such as the Palace
of Westminster, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, and the Royal Society
of Arts. But what are the Franklin connections? Starting from
Benjamin Franklin House, each Wednesday (April – November) at 10:30,
participants can discover them in our new fun and informative Walking
stopping at the edge of the River Thames, they will learn that a brave
young Franklin swam from Blackfriars toward Chelsea,
performing in his own words "many feats of
activity, both upon and under water," in
contrast to today’s Londoners, who would be reticent to do
likewise. They will also discover traces of a pre-Embankment Thames,
gaining insight even if they are already a London expert.
