‘…remember that we were all once strangers and pilgrims in the land… This memory is also a call to demonstrate the generosity to the strangers of our own day which flows from the heart..’

 

Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London (of Huguenot refugee descent)

 

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

‘ A rare opportunity to see inside this unique immigrant site, not at present normally open to the public. This magical Grade II* listed building, a Huguenot silk merchant’s home and hidden Victorian synagogue, captures the imagination of all who cross its dusty threshold.’
