Soho House

Museum in Birmingham

Situated 1.5 miles northwest of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, Soho House is where industrialist Matthew Boulton lived from 1766 to 1809. Among the restored 18th-century chambers is the dining room where Boulton and members of the esteemed Lunar Society met to discuss their world-changing ideas during the greatest technological leap forward since the invention of the wheel. Admission is by hour-long guided tour. From Priory Queensway, take bus 74 to the Rose Hill Rd stop.
