London’s Malplaquet House is an enormous Cabinet of Curiosities
The Malplaquet House is filled floor-to-ceiling with art, religious artifacts, and natural history specimens.
Regarded as one of the strangest residences in London, Malplaquet House is a 20-room historic mansion built in 1740 for a wealthy merchant. When current owners Tim Knox and Todd Longstaffe-Gowan bought the place from the Spitalfields Trust in 1998 it had not been inhabited in over a century.
They spent the next five years painstakingly restoring Malplaquet House to it’s former glory. Then they filled the house with their vast collections of art, artifacts and natural history specimens.
