As part of this year’s Open House festival, we invite you to take the exclusive chance to experience Benjamin Franklin House self-guided, using our free, digital guide on Bloomberg Connects.
36 Craven Street is exceptional given that it retains a high degree of authentic features, with relatively few later alterations. These include original floorboards, original ceilings, and original fireplaces. Most of the rooms are panelled; the stairs are original. There are carved wood mantelpieces with decorative pilasters to the jambs in the room which was Franklin’s Parlour. Combined with Benjamin Franklin’s long residence, the House is of special cultural importance, reflected by its Grade l status.
Visitors will be able to walk around at their own leisure and will get to go behind the scenes through exclusive talks and information on the app.
This is a drop-in open day, so there is no need to pre-book. To prepare and save time upon arrival, please download our guide on Bloomberg Connects.
There will be an alternative, accessible version of the guide available on the day.
Plan your day here.
