Best known for designing the Bank of England, neoclassical architect Sir John Soane bequeathed this eccentric house museum and its contents to the nation following his death in 1837. It preserves Soane's vast collection of drawings, paintings and antiquities in the same theatrical manner in which he lived alongside them.The museum also holds a collection of his own architectural plans and models, many of which were never realised. As a quaint time capsule and an expression of one man's artistic vision, this unique space opens up a truly magical experience for all who enter its doors.
