Dennis Severs House, Spitalfields.

Made a trip to Dennis Sever's House today in Spitalfields, East London. What an amazing experience well worth the £8 entry fee. Its only open on certain days of the month, Severs was an American who loved England, The house is a time capsule – sometimes opened up. If you look closely you can see a squirrel!

Its creator, Dennis Severs, an artist used his visitor’s imagination as his canvas, and who lived in the house much the same as its original inhabitants may have done in the early 18th Century. To enter its door is to pass through a frame into a painting: one with a time and life of its own! 18 Folgate Street Spitalfields E1 6BX - nearest tube Liverpool Street - his is a fascinating story more info here:
