What You Can Expect
Close to the British Museum is Sir John Soane's Museum, perhaps the most intimate and eccentric London house you'll have the opportunity to visit. One of the most individual British architects, Sir John Soane (1753 - 1837) bequeathed it to the nation with its extensive collection of paintings, sculptures, antiquities and architectural fragments. You'll see Hogarth's Rake's Progress and artworks by Canaletto, Turner and Piranesi.
This in-depth private walking tour is hosted by an expert guide specializing in art history. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.
Please note: Sir John Soane's Museum is closed on Sunday and Monday, so more time will be spent in the British Museum on these days.
I posted this review already. It was an excellent tour. Excellent guide and I look forward to trying the service again! Jeff Amos.
Rose Marie was very knowledgeable
Great day with a very erudite lady of my senior vintage! A great way to learn and not get lost!
Rosa Maria (my guide) was amazing. I highly recommend this tour! Our time together went so fast. She was so knowledgeable and she catered the tour to my interests. While we saw popular items, she showed me things I would have missed in the museum. The Soane museum was so fascinating. We could have easily spent 5 hours on the tour!
Very knowledgeable guide. Enriching and entettaiing
Fantastic museums. We expected to be impressed by the British Museum, but were completely surprised by how interesting the Soane turned out to be.
If I could give this tour 6 stars, I would! I have been on many private tour of many museums and our tour guide was the most knowledgeable, most articulate, and most enthusiastic! She was able to tell the story of the Museum in a way that connected with each of us in our group. I would recommend this tour, highly.
Tour guide was fabulous.
The two museums are amazing and probably need to schedule at least four hours to see. We took 2 hours and 25 minutes to see British museum so when we got to Soane museum they would not let us in, so we went back on our own. That means our 3.5 hour tour really only lasted 2.5 hours with the guide.
Our guide was knowledgeable and directed us to numerous key viewings. She was a bit hard to hear when the crowds became large.
