Who we are

Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade I listed country house of influential British architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. The award-winning £12m NLHF & ACE-supported renovation project restored the Manor to Soane’s original designs and upgraded the adjacent Gallery – a project that was selected as one of the best restorations of the decade by Country Life, 2019.

The Trust’s vision is to build on the dual foundations of the historic manor and its contemporary programme of exhibitions to inspire its communities in art architecture and design. Since opening Pitzhanger has welcomed many thousands of visitors, run a varied programme of events and workshops, and received excellent reviews from the public and the press. Its programme of exhibitions and events is supported by its fundraising campaigns and retail operations (including private hire, catering and a shop). Anish Kapoor inaugurated the new gallery with an acclaimed exhibition of mirror sculptures, setting the tone for the ambitious programme of exhibitions to follow which have included Es Devlin, Julian Opie and Rana Begum RA.
