Sir John Soane's Museum
The life and work of one of England’s greatest architects, Sir John Soane, is revealed in the Sir John Soane's Museum in Holborn. Whilst alive, he passionately collected a diverse range of sculptures, antiques, furniture and paintings – from artists such as Turner, Hogarth and Canaletto – along with tens of thousands of architectural drawings. Upon his death it was decreed by an Act of Parliament that his home would be maintained in the same condition for the public to enjoy.
Candlelight tours take place on set occasions during the month, creating a unique and atmospheric guide through Soane’s life. A number of events and exhibitions are run in conjunction to the permanent displays, offering a varied and educational calendar through the year.
