Our Research Library contains Soane’s collection of 30,000 architectural drawings and 10,000 books, along with a small working Library of modern books and information files on Soane, Robert Adam and other relevant architects.
The Archive contains Soane’s business and personal papers.
You can visit the Research Library and Archive by appointment, Wednesday to Friday 10:00 to 13:00, 14:00 to 17:00.
To make an appointment please email email@example.com or phone 020 7440 4251.
We strongly encourage visitors to make appointments two weeks in advance, as space is very limited. The Library is on the first floor and is not accessible to wheelchair users. However, staff are happy to bring drawings, books and archives down to the ground floor on a Tuesday (when the Museum is closed) or at other times by appointment.
