A group of us (all engineers) had a private tour of Soho house. Our guide, Andrew Lound really made the tour and the history of Matthew Boulton and the Lunar society come alive. His enthusiasm and knowledge are second to none and really make the experience something special.

The guide, Andrew, gave us a feeling that we were in a place with real historical importance. The atmosphere was great both in the tour and in the cafe which was clearly relished by local people.
