The world-renowned Sir John Soane’s Museum is one of the most iconic and influential buildings in the history of architecture. Created by Sir John Soane, one of Britain’s greatest architects, it was his home as well as his private Museum. Soane’s collections are still arranged today as they were at the time of his death in 1837. Be transported back to Regency London as we guide you through this hidden gem and treat you to a fascinating insight into Soane’s work and family life and the stories behind some of his many treasures.
Sir John Soane’s Museum is the extraordinary house and museum of the British architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837). Sir John Soane was one of the foremost architects of the Regency era, a Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy, and a dedicated collector of paintings, sculpture, architectural fragments and models, books, drawings and furniture. During his career he won numerous high-profile projects, including the Bank of England (where he was architect for 45 years) and Dulwich Picture Gallery, and created his own extraordinary home and Museum on Lincoln’s Inn Fields in central London. The collection contains thousands of objects ranging from Ancient Egyptian antiquities (such as the sarcophagus of the Egyptian pharaoh, Seti I) and Roman sculpture to paintings by Hogarth, Turner and Canaletto all of which you will have the opportunity to view on our tours.
