Soho House was once a regular meeting place for some of the greatest minds of the 18th century.

It was in the dining room of this elegant house that Matthew Boulton, one of the country's leading industrialists, entertained well-known scientists and inventors of the age. The carefully restored interiors feature fine collections of ormolu, silver, furniture and paintings. Find out about Boulton's steam engine partnership with James Watt, the Soho Mint, and the founding of the remarkable Lunar Society.
