Historical Experience & Architectural Tour

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.

How we are working to protect the health of our staff and visitors

  • We ask staff and volunteers to wear masks inside the House (This does not include the actor who leads the Historical Experience show)
  • We recommend visitors who can wear a mask inside the House and to observe social distancing when possible
  • If you would prefer to visit with only your household/bubble, please contact us at info@benjaminfranklinhouse.org or 02078392006

We look forward to welcoming you to Benjamin Franklin’s only surviving home where we work to bring history and innovation to life!
