WHY GO? To explore Sir John Soane’s country home which has been lovingly restored after a £12m building programme, and as an added bonus, see the stunning work of celebrated sculptor Anish Kapoor.
The great architect built Pitzhanger as his dream retreat, to house many of his antiquities, entertain friends and fish in his lake. It reopens for the first time in over three years and is a triumphant feat of artisan skills all round. The new additional gallery will hold the first art exhibition, shiny Kapoor sculptures that reflect the gleaming new space.
IN THE KNOW While Pitzhanger was Sir John Soane’s dream country home, Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London was his renowned London house - now a museum filled with his art treasures, curiosities and antiquities all relatively untouched since his death almost 180 years ago. And entry is FREE!
