Dennis Severs' House

Lonely Planet review

This extraordinary Georgian House is set up as if its occupants had just walked out the door. There are half-drunk cups of tea, lit candles and, in a perhaps unnecessary attention to detail, a full chamber pot by the bed. More than a museum, it's an opportunity to meditate on the minutiae of everyday Georgian life through silent exploration.

Bookings are required for the Monday evening candlelit sessions (£14; 6pm to 9pm), but you can just show up on the first and third Sundays of the month (£10; noon to 4pm) or the following Mondays (£7; noon to 2pm).
