BFH Logo smallBenjamin Franklin House at 36 Craven Street in the heart of London is a heritage ‘gem’. It was Franklin’s home in London between 1757-1762 and again between 1764-1775. Furthermore, it is his only surviving home in existence. First opened to the public on 17 January 2006, Ben Franklin’s 300th birthday, as a dynamic museum and educational facility, its exceptional charm lies in its dramatic reconstruction of Franklin’s life in London in the context of the house in which he lived.
