For a limited time only Sir John Soane's Museum is offering a complimentary upgrade from a prosecco reception to a Ruinart Champagne Reception with any Candlelit Tour. These tours allow guests exclusive-access to Soane's eccentric house, with the interiors and collections preserved and arranged as exactly as the architect left them on his death in 1837. Guests enter after the museum has been closed to the public and will be guided into the exquisite Library-Dining Room where they will enjoy a glass of white wine, elderflower, or champagne from the world's oldest champagne house, and the brand Soane himself favoured: Ruinart. The half-hour reception is followed by a one-hour tour of the museum with an expert staff member who will discuss the career and collection of one of Britain's most famous architects in the mystical candlelight. This is truly a wonderful chance to impress your guests with a memorable night in one of London's best house museums.
This exclusive offer is available for any candlelit tour booked between now and 31 August 2017.
