Here's a chance to discover a marvellously atmospheric 300-old-year house in the heart of Birmingham. If you visit Soho House you'll be following in the footsteps of some of the greatest minds of the 18th century. It was the home of wealthy industrialist Matthew Boulton, who entertained period luminaries like James Watt, Erasmus Darwin, Josiah Wedgwood and Joseph Priestly here. Inside Soho House there's now a museum where you'll discover rare period decorations and artefacts. Learn how Boulton's learned guests formed the renowned Georgian 'Lunar Society' in the dining room here. And outside, there's a restored Georgian period garden to explore - complete with sphinxes.
