Soho House was the elegant, beautifully restored, home of the industrialist and entrepreneur Matthew Boulton from 1766 to 1809, reflecting the fashions and tastes of the late Georgian period.  There’s also the chance to see some of the products of Boulton’s nearby factory, such as buttons and buckles, clocks, vases, and silver and Sheffield plate tableware.

Boulton developed the steam engine in partnership with James Watt.

Soho House was also a favourite meeting place of the Lunar Society, a leading Enlightenment group. The Lunar Society would meet every month on the night of the full moon to dine, conduct experiments, and discuss philosophical matters of the day. Members of the society included Erasmus Darwin, James Watt and Joseph Priestly.
