About the Leighton House Museum

The former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton, and is the only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the UK

It is most famous for the sumptuous interior decoration, which makes it one of the most remarkable buildings of the nineteenth century.

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.

In addition to the decoration, it contains a collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries.
