Soho House

We are delighted to be able to welcome group visits to Soho House where we can welcome groups of 10 - 30 guests for a wonderful visit including a guided tour from just £10.75 per person.

Soho House was the elegant home of the industrialist and entrepreneur Matthew Boulton from 1766 to 1809.

The house has been beautifully restored and reflects the fashions and tastes of the late Georgian period.

There’s also the chance to see some of the products of Boulton’s nearby factory – where buttons and buckles, clocks and vases, and silver and Sheffield plate tableware were made – and where he developed the steam engine in partnership with James Watt.

Soho House was also a favourite meeting place of the Lunar Society, a leading Enlightenment group. The Lunar Society would meet every month on the night of the full moon to dine, conduct experiments, and discuss philosophical matters of the day.

Members of the society included Erasmus Darwin, James Watt and Joseph Priestly who all gathered around the Lunar Room table and engaged in a lively exchange of ideas which inspired many new discoveries and inventions.
