Day 21: we Huguenot


Went to see Dennis Severs' house tonight! It's a period property that's been designed/maintained as a Huguenot silk weaver's home, spanning two hundred years, and in the evenings, full of candlelit magic.

This guy, working the door: 'Just normal times here.'

The best part - to be honest - were the wraiths haunting each floor. We knew the tour had to be conducted in silence - the better to hear the unearthly pattering of footsteps, the eerie whispers, that they carefully cultivated - but each floor's very-earthly attendants hovering over our shoulders made us jump/laugh in equal measure. 

A lovely night in all; definitely recommend if you're in the area!
