A per­fectly pre­served 18th-cen­tury home in the East End

Town & Country (UK) - - TOWN -

Be­hind a Ge­or­gian façade in Spi­tal­fields lies one of the most re­mark­able houses in Lon­don: 18 Fol­gate Street was the for­mer home of Den­nis Sev­ers, an Amer­i­can who loved Bri­tish his­tory so much that he trans­formed it into a shrine to cen­turies past. The can­dlelit Christ­mas tours are par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar, when rooms are filled with the smell of orange peel and pine nee­dles, and lit by the dim flick­er­ing of wax ta­pers. cg www.den­nis­sev­er­shouse. co.uk.
