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, Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy and a dedicated collector of art, architectural fragments and models, books, drawings, and furniture. With a collection containing thousands of objects ranging from Ancient Egyptian items and Roman sculpture to models of contemporary buildings, Soane’s house had become a Museum by the time of his death. You can find out more here.
As well as this extraordinary house and collection, at the time of our visit there is also an exhibition of Hogarth’s works. You can find out more about the artist and this exhibition here. Your ticket for the house will give you entry to the exhibition.
