Why locals recommend it
This amazing 19th century townhouse was the home of architect John Soane and has been left untouched since his death nearly 180 years ago. It is a remarkable treasure trove, full to bursting with unique objects. I just love his stunning architectural drawings. And don’t miss the room full of marble artifacts. Go at night. The museum is open 6-9 pm the first Tuesday of every month, when it’s illuminated only by candlelight. It is magical.
