Event Details

£25, morning

Built in 1697 as a grand country house for a Dutch merchant, 195 Mare Street is one of Hackney’s oldest buildings. The house became the Elizabeth Fry Refuge in 1860 and was home to thousands of young women recently released from prison. In the twentieth century, 195 Mare Street became the New Lansdowne Working Men’s Club and a hub of Hackney social life. The house is currently being restored by Lynch Architects and will become a family home and community arts venue. Works include restoring partitions between rooms, installing a new staircase and reviving the historic kitchen.

Members to make their own arrangements for transport.  This visit is for Georgian Group members only.
