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

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

Great hidden gem in Birmingham telling the historical connection with the industrial revolution and the slave trade. Activities to keep younger children entertained.

Upon arrival at Soho House, I was greeted by the venues staff excellently and felt very welcome. My visit to Soho House was work based, but thanks to the venue it just felt like a nice day out which helped me produce some excellent work. The seating area, was a nice spot to just sit and admire the estate, with... More
