This is more of an experience than a visit; home to American artist Dennis Severs who died in 2000, every room in this Georgian house represents a step back into history (each evoking a point in time between the 18C and early 20C). Smells and sounds contribute to this holistic experience where time seems suspended, a sensation accentuated on Monday evenings when visits occur by candlelight.
