These pages are dedicated to our Collection – from finding out how it’s cared for by our Conservation team, to purchasing images of our objects from our Picture Library.   

Soane amassed an extraordinary collection, full of curiosities and surprises. He collected antiquities, furniture, sculptures, architectural models and drawings, and paintings including work by Hogarth, Turner and Canaletto. It is truly world-class, spanning continents and millennia.

Many objects are on permanent display. Some – including 30,000 architectural drawings – are not and can be seen by appointment at the Research Library. The collection can also be accessed online where you can browse highlights or search thousands of objects on our database.
