Huguenot Museum | Things to do

Huguenot Museum


Did you know that 1 in 6 English people may be of Huguenot descent? We tell the story of the Huguenots, French protestant refugees escaping persecution from 16th to the early 18th century. More than 50,000 settled here especially in London and South of England. The Huguenots were noted for their skills in a range of trades and crafts, such as silk weaving and silversmithing, and had a huge impact on British business and cultural life.
