Candlelit Visits London

Dennis Severs’ House Mon; 104; Sir John Soane’s Museum first Tue of month; see ppy Two of the most curious and atmospheric houses in London both offer candlelit viewings. The aim is to recreate the mood of the past, when flickering yellow light and darting shadows characterised the ambience in these houses. In the light of a flame, Soane’s classical sculptures seem to shimmer and shake, and the building seems even more labyrinthine. At Dennis Severs’ House, the candlelight enhances an atmosphere already strong with scents of fruit and lavender, and the ghostly sound of voices, seemingly in the next room.
