he dividing line between museum and eccentric private collection is very blurry There. Neoclassical architect John Soane was quite the hoarder, and his trophies are displayed in a series of terraced houses. Expect Roman busts, Peruvian pottery, an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus, thousands of architectural drawings and medieval stained glass. The treasures may be eclectic but what makes the experience so bizarre is the way everything is displayed. Whereas most museums give each artefact respectful, dignified space, Sir John Soane's goes for borderline anarchic clutter, to the point where you're almost clambering through everything.
