    • A tour of Benjamin Franklin House, the last remaining home of Benjamin Franklin.

    Benjamin Franklin House is the last remaining former home of polymathic Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin.

    Architectural tour

    The Architectural tour explores the Georgian features of the house, along with its fascinating history encompassing Franklin’s long residence (1757-1775), the Hewson anatomy school, and the comprehensive conservation project that saved it from dereliction.

    Located on Craven Street, just a short walk from Trafalgar Square, this historical building dates from circa 1730 and was the residence of Benjamin Franklin in London between 1757 and 1775, during which time this extraordinary man was involved with mediation between America and Britain as well as his groundbreaking scientific studies.

    The house, which is now the site of a student science centre, is the only remaining residence of Benjamin Franklin and is widely recognised as being the leading centre for studies related to Franklin. Visitors can get an insight into Franklin's life through the many artefacts on show, on a 25-minute architectural tour. You can also visit another London attraction, the Scholarship Centre, which houses a full set of Franklin’s papers.

    With many original architectural features, you can explore the residence and its many original artefacts on an in-depth architectural tour.
