AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Is this London’s loveliest museum? It’s certainly its most curious, and perhaps most quintessentially British. It’s the former home of architect Sir John Soane, who adapted his gracious townhouse to house his collection of art, sculpture and artifacts. It’s an eccentric warren of a place, and the contents include a room full of Hogarth paintings, hung on special foldaway panels, and ancient Egyptian sarcophagi in the basement. On Tuesday evenings, it’s open late, and lit by candlelight, which is an especially atmospheric way to visit.
