You're in for a Treat

This has to be one of London's least well known yet most fascinating museums. Located in a three-storey house, it showcases one of the city’s most talented architects from the 18th century. Sir John Soane was responsible for designing the Bank of England, Bank of Ireland, the Freemasons Hall and several churches. In his house you can easily get lost in the hidden passageways and corners. Be sure to find the hidden paintings in one of the main rooms inside the Sir John Soane Museum and the sarcophagus in the basement. It’s like a curiosity shop inside! Even better, with this being one of the lesser known museums, it doesn't receive the crowds that the main museums get. On the first Tuesday of every month, the Sir John Soane museum does a candlelit tour starting at 18.00 but you need to queue up early to be guaranteed a place as they are limited to 200 people. The museum is closed on Sundays and Mondays, entry is free.
