PITZHANGER MANOR AND GALLERY
Thursday 21 March 2019

Information about booking visits

Information about visit to Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery and booking form

This visit is now fully booked

The house  was owned from 1800 to 1810 by the architect John Soane, who radically rebuilt it. Soane intended it as a country villa for entertaining and eventually for passing to his elder son.

In March 2019, following a major £12m conservation and revitalization project, Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery will be reopening to the public returning Pitzhanger to Soane’s original design, visible for the first time in over 175 years. Visitors will be able to explore Soane’s architecture up close, giving an insight into the mind of one of Britain’s most influential and idiosyncratic architects.

Pitzhanger Gallery is housed in the 1939 Ealing public lending library, built on the site of Soane’s kitchen block.  The central gallery has its own domed skylights, inspired by Soane and an additional gallery space has been built, equipped with environmental controls. The Gallery will present  Anish Kapoor sculptures that echo Soanes complex use of mirrors and light to double and dissolve space.
