Our exciting London day highlights two small but major and focussed collections.  We start the day at Sir John Soane’s Museum, the home and office of this important Georgian architect and collector, in Lincoln’s Inn Fields with a private tour focusing on the most spectacular rooms and famous treasures such as paintings by Canaletto and Turner, a 3000 year old Egyptian sarcophagus and Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress.  The tour also includes the newly restored private apartments with Soane’s extraordinary model room. 

We will then head north by tube to Islington and The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art which opened in 1998 and is known internationally for its core of Futurist works as well as figurative and abstract sculpture dating from 1890 to the 1950s.  Our guided tour there will introduce us to the collections and the special exhibition Boccioni: The Lost Sculptures.  Then we will head back to Kings Cross to explore some of the new architecture in this critically acclaimed development and finish with refreshments in one of the new flats on the site.


£37.50, includes entry fees, guided tours and refreshments at the end of the day.  Does not include transport to, from and in London and lunch.
