Take a journey back in time, inside two of London’s most hidden gems in Spitalfields: Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street and the Sandys Row Synagogue at Sandy Row.

Starting with a guided tour to London’s oldest Ashkenazi Synagogue and the last fully functioning Jewish community in what was once the very heart of the Jewish East End, founded in 1854. After a short stroll through Spitalfields, you will visit Dennis Severs’ House, a powerful yet intimate evocation of the lives of an imaginary family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. You will wander in silence through the house’s ten rooms, each lit by fire and candlelight.
