About Leighton House Museum

Leighton House Museum is located on the edge of Halland Park in Kensington, London, is the former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896). As the only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the United Kingdom, it is one of the most remarkable buildings of the nineteenth century, containing a fascinating collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries.  From modest beginnings it grew into a ‘private palace of art’ featuring the extraordinary Arab Hall with its golden dome, intricate mosaics and walls lined with beautiful Islamic tiles. Upstairs, Leighton’s vast painting studio was one of the sights of London, filled with paintings in different stages of completion, the walls hung with examples of his work and lit by a great north window. When visiting Kensington and looking for a day full of culture and history, look no further than the stunning Leighton House Museum.
