Tour 13 Princelet Street

Your author is rather keen on 19 Princelet Street, London's Museum of Immigration and Settlement, and thoroughly enjoys volunteering there on open days, but there is another house in the same street which occasionally opens to the public. 13 Princelet Street is owned by the Landmark Trust charity, which restores old buildings and rents them out to the public for holidays.

This weekend, however, is a bit different, as the Trust is opening the house to all comers, and in a street of houses which historically were homes to Huguenot silk weavers, it is fitting that the London Guild of Weavers will also be demonstrating silk weaving over the weekend.

For more on the opening, see http://www.landmarktrust.org.uk/visiting/opendays.htm#Princelet
