Group Visits

Soho House was the elegant home of the industrialist and entrepreneur Matthew Boulton from 1766 to 1809. Beautifully restored, the house reflects the fashions and tastes of the late Georgian period.

Soho House was a favourite meeting place of the Lunar Society, a leading Enlightenment group. They met every month on the night of the full moon to dine, conduct experiments, and discuss philosophical matters of the day. Erasmus Darwin, James Watt and Joseph Priestley all gathered around the Lunar Room table and engaged in a lively exchange of ideas which inspired many new discoveries and inventions.

Soho is an unexpected haven close to the city centre, with a peaceful garden carefully designed using Boulton’s original planting lists. The newly refurbished visitor centre contains a gift shop and beautiful tearoom which looks out onto the gardens and the striking façade of Soho House.
