Sir John Soane’s Museum

Lincoln's Inn Fields
Private Tour

This extensive Georgian house pays homage to the legendary Grand Tour. An assemblage of funereal urns, architectural fragments, and a life-size statue modeled on the Vatican’s Apollo Belvedere all eerily come to life when you book an exclusive-access, curator-led candlelit tour. Spot parallels between the museum and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, and discover Soane’s use of clever architectural devices, his penchant for decorative ceilings, and how an 1833 act of parliament kept this house untouched. (Private tour, from $1,685)
