Visit 19 Princelet Street

Refugee Week begins tomorrow, and continues until next Sunday, and in anticipation today your author will be spending the day at 19 Princelet Street in Spitalalfields, a fragile building in East London which opens only occasionally and is London's Museum of Immigration.

The house was built in 1719 by Samuel Worrall and quickly became home to a family of Huguenot weavers called the Ogiers, who had escaped from persecution in France. Since then, the story of the house has mirrored the history of the East End, in a fascinating story retold at 19 Princelet Street, the Museum of Immigration.

The building is open today Sunday 14th June from noon until 5pm and again next Sunday 21st June, from noon until 5pm. For more, see http://www.19princeletstreet.org.uk/

  1. I had a good look at this building that once operated as a gorgeous synagogue. Well done for opening it up again during June.
