You'll step back into the days of Queen Victoria when you visit this terrace house, which has remained unchanged for well over a century. Built in the late 1860s, the five-story brick structure was the home of Linley Sambourne, a legendary cartoonist for Punch magazine. In the entrance hall, you'll see the mixture of styles that typifies Victorian decor, with a plus portière, a fireplace valance, stained glass, and a large set of antlers vying for attention. The drawing room contains an incredible number of Victorian items. The house can be visited only as part of a guided tour. Two types of tour are available: conventional tours and ones led by an actor in period costume. Allow about 1 1/2 hours.

Insider's tip: It's best to prebook your tour by phone.
