About Sir John Soane's Museum

Formerly the home of the neo-classical architect John Soane.

It holds many drawings and models of Soane's projects and the collections of paintings, drawings and antiquities that he assembled.

It's a rather eclectic display mirroring the collector, and can be quite cluttered, in a sort of charming sort of layout.
