Historical Experience & Architectural Tour

We have reopened!

A visit to Benjamin Franklin House offers a unique look into Franklin’s life in London. More information about the Historic Experience and Architectural Tours, and how to book, can be found below.

Changes to ensure the safety of visitors and staff 

  • Groups are currently limited to 10 visitors from separate households
  • We recommend that all staff and visitors (excluding those exempt under current UK government guidance) wear a mask 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

When possible, we look forward to welcoming you again to Benjamin Franklin’s only surviving home in fulfilment of our mission to bring history and innovation to life!
