Architectural Tour

The Architectural Tour explores the Georgian features of House, along with its fascinating history encompassing Franklin’s long residence (1757-1775), the Hewson anatomy school, and the comprehensive conservation project that saved it from dereliction.

Changes to ensure the safety of visitors and staff

  • Group sizes are currently restricted to 10 people from separate households
  • If you would prefer to visit in smaller numbers or just with your household/bubble please get in touch at or 02078392006
  • We recommend that all visitors/staff wear a mask (unless exempt)  inside the House – on entry, visitors will find a station with hand sanitiser, masks, and gloves
  • Our staff will be regularly cleaning the public areas throughout the days we are open to the public to ensure a safe environment

We look forward to welcoming you to Benjamin Franklin’s only surviving home in fulfilment of our mission to bring history and innovation to life!
