We had been meaning to visit Soho house for years and finally got around to visiting after seeing Soho house featured on Bargain Hunt and were not disappointed. Our guide was very enthusiastic and friendly and I really enjoyed finding out the history of the Lunar society and all the achievements of Matthew Boulton and friends. The house is very... More

Worth a visit if you have a genuine interest in Britain's second city and its history. The house dates from a time when the West Midlands was a real centre of innovation.

The house appeared to be closed when we arrived, Wednesday lunchtime, but the door was opened for us and the gentleman explained that they weren't expecting visitors as no bookings had been received for that day. No mention of booking on the website. However, after looking around the Exhibition Room where a lot of the history of the house and... More

The house itself is well worth the trip, a lovely example of a Georgian house set in a quiet corner not far out of central Birmingham. The collection of artefacts in the exhibition and dotted around the house were fascinating. But what made it really special was the guide who took our party on the tour. The new, young, enthusiastic... More

This hidden gem is well worth seeking out ... Birmingham should make more of the incredible history of the area in general and this house in particular ... The exhibition about Matthew Boulton's working life and the family home work brilliantly together. I cannot recommend this museum highly enough!

Excellent visit today to this house it would be so easy to adopt, with fabulous tour by new manager - knowledgeable and enthusiastic and professional. Deserves to be much better known both in Birmingham and beyond. Really important house historically as well as being delightful in its own right. Go.

This fascinating and under appreciated house is worth a detour. A friend and I were the only two on the timed tour on a wet afternoon, but our wonderful guide, Jeff, took us for a delightful, humorous and well informed tour of the house. I can't recommend this attraction highly enough. Birmingham's famous and farsighted Matthew Boulton is given relevance... More

I was having WiFi problems on the day, but knew that I had to book on a tour to visit Soho House so I arrived early. At the gate I meet Stephanie who had also arrived early for her first day at work. The tour was led by a charming and well informed guide named Julia who provided a good... More

This large house, which isn't quite as large as it used to be, has some lovely furniture & fittings plus other exhibits.
