Bedgrove 8.20 Ashbrook 8.30 and George 8.35

Dennis Severs House near Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is a portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the beginning of the 20th Century. There will be a short introduction and then free flow through the building.

There are 70 stairs to be climbed in this visit but there are seats in all the rooms if anyone needs a rest.

In order to preserve the quality of our carpets and floors, please refrain from wearing stiletto heels and shoes with deeply ridged soles. Many thanks in advance!

Lunch may be found at any of the numerous venues around Spitalfields.

Rejoin the coach for the short journey to Charterhouse for a guided tour of this building which has had a varied past since 1348: a monastery, private mansion, boys school and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.

Depart London 3.45 approximately.
