Benjamin Franklin House

Down in Craven Street (just off The Strand, near Charing Cross station) is a quiet looking house. 

There you will find Benjamin Franklin house (No 36 Craven Street), home to the famous American when he lived in London. 

It is the only surviving residence of Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States (although never President). 

The Grade I Georgian terraced house was home to Benjamin Franklin for 16 years, and it is now open as a museum.
