Visiting the Office

We are delighted to be able to offer public tours of Sir John Soane's Drawing Office for the very first time in its 200-year history. To celebrate the opening of this unique space, we will also be hosting a series of open days and evening events.


Free tours of the Office take place on Thursdays and Saturdays at 2.30pm. Tours are expected to last around 20 minutes, departing from the Library-Dining Room. These free tours are not bookable in advance, and we can only take a maximum group size of six into the Drawing Office, so tours will operate on a first-come first-served basis. 

If you would like to join a tour, please ask the Visitor Assistant in the Library-Dining Room, on the ground floor, to note your name.
