Sir John Soane's Museum
A house is not just a home

Sir John Soane’s Museum is one of London’s amazing cultural treasure-troves. Donated to the Nation by architect Sir John Soane in 1837, the house is full of rich architectural surprises which frame Soane’s vast collection of antiquities and art: from the sarcophagus of Seti I in the crypt to Hogarth paintings in the picture gallery.

Soane designed this house for his family to live in, but after the death of his wife he inhabited the space alone, constantly adding to and rearranging his collections. The house is now part cabinet of curiosities, part living space, and an altogether fascinating and somehow otherworldly experience.
