Be transported back to Regency London with an expert-led guided tour of Sir John Soane’s extraordinary home. This promises to be a fascinating insight into Soane’s work and family life while learning the stories behind some of his many treasures. This intimate tour is the perfect way to learn more about the Soane Museum and its collection, from the people who know it best.

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 here on Lincoln’s Inn Fields. 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 the tour.
