Walking Tours

Close by his only surviving home at 36 Craven Street are places of national and historic importance such as the Palace of Westminster, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, and the Royal Society of Arts.  But what are the Franklin connections? Starting from Benjamin Franklin House, each Wednesday (April – November) at 10:30, participants can discover them in our new fun and informative Walking Tour. 

For example, stopping at the edge of the River Thames, they will learn that a brave young Franklin swam from Blackfriars toward Chelsea, performing in his own words "many feats of activity, both upon and under water," in contrast to today’s Londoners, who would be reticent to do likewise.  They will also discover traces of a pre-Embankment Thames, gaining insight even if they are already a London expert.

To make a booking please contact Braena Sykes, Operations Manager by email or by telephone 020783 92006. Walking Tours cost 5.00 per adult, no concessions apply. Under 16s are invited to take part free of charge. Please note Walking Tours run from April – November (inclusive) and by special request December – March.
