Tickets to see inside a remarkable home that had been richly decorated in the gothic revival style, and little changed ever since have been released.

David Parr House is an ordinary Victorian terraced house, but inside, the owner David Parr spent decades decorating, and when his granddaughter moved in, apart from modest changes for daily life, the house is as it was a century ago.

It’s not just a chance to step back into a home of the past, but to surround yourself with two generations of a household that lived in the most remarkable time-capsule. The decoration, the light, the smells, the clutter of a very ordinary house turned into something magical.

Thanks to its small size and the need to keep it protected for the future, tours are limited in number, and they’ve just released details for next year.

If you plan one trip out of London in 2020, make it a trip to Cambridge, and visit David Parr house. It’s astonishing.

To book tickets — and they are selling out very fast already — go here.

A review from my visit earlier this year is here.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
