“Could be missed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Initially it appeared to be fenced off as it is on the edge of the site of a demolished hotel just off Red Square but worth finding the access. A modest but interesting site brought to life by one of the guides who was able to give insight into the history of the building in English. She was also very informative on how the trading relationship between England and Russia developed. All for 50 roubles!

“Hidden Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across it on the way to Romanov Chambers. It is a hidden gem of history, being the first English Embassy in Russia c 15th century. Lots of information in English and the guide spoke good English. Very interesting and informative providing a glimpse into the relations between Russia and England.
