You really dont need to know everything about John Soane to visit this unique museum, but it's best to know a bit about life in this era (Regency) to understand the context and the culture of collecting. This is a unique property located in a...More
Located not far from Russel Square, you'll find this eclectic and fascinating collection of art, architecture and history. I had heard about this from a colleague and figured it was time to go. Admission is free and I think they manage numbers fairly well so...More
A very unusual and personal. collection of one man. Amazing paintings and other artefacts including various statues and other carved items. Very attractive living rooms on the first floor. Will not be to everyone's taste - but should be visited.
Fantastically restored Architects house full of a most eclectic mix of curios. Unbelievable collection and also amazing insight into early 1800’s. Free entry and tours in afternoon of private quarters of the family. Well worth a visit if you like history, art and architecture.

Home of the Bank of England architect this home is a full of history and artefacts. Tucked away you feel like you are entering a small town house, but don’t be fooled - lots of extensive rooms behind. Make a visit
This museum is a fantastic alternative to the large museums. The house itself, the history, the book and art collections - and the 'crypt' that kept even our teenager interested. No queues and a tour takes about 1-2hours.
Tucked away in Holburn is this excellent little museum that is packed with the late owner's collection of curios. It's best to read about it beforehand as there are no explanations in the house itself.
Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit practically any taste or budget. With major attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
as well as popular areas such as Covent Garden and Soho all just a short walk away, Holborn is a smart base from which to explore London.

You can book tickets on our website for our highlights tours, or book a private apartments tour in the museum on the day, subject to availability. Entry to the Museum is otherwise unreserved; there is sometimes a short queue, but turning up at 11 on a Thursday morning should be a fairly quiet time to arrive.
