The Reopening of Pitzhanger Manor
We are delighted that following a three-year closure that Sir John Soane’s beautiful suburban retreat is once again open to the public following £12m restoration project. Soane bought the house in 1800 and immediately set about constructing a building to house his art and antiquities collection. His friend and fellow Professor at the Royal Academy, J.M.W. Turner, was a frequent guest and both would regularly go fishing and entertain each other and their close circle of friends at their houses. Soane sold Pitzhanger in 1810 and moved his collection (including William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress series) back to his town residence in Holborn.
We suggest visiting Turner’s House and Pitzhanger Manor on the same outing as both properties complement each other in a unique way.
