Leighton House

Join us for a 90-minute private tour of Leighton House, one of the most remarkable buildings of the nineteenth century. Leighton House is the former home of G F Watts's close friend, Frederic Leighton, and features the Arab Hall with its golden dome, intricate mosaics and walls lined with Islamic tiles. On display is a stunning collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries, including a portrait of Leighton by G F Watts.

The Museum can be found on Holland Park Road and the nearest tube stations are Kensington Olympia (5-minute walk) and High Street Kensington (10-minute walk).

We will meet at the Museum at 11.15am for a 11.30am tour.

A table for lunch will be reserved at a local restaurant for 1.45pm for those who wish to stay, payable on the day.

Pre-booking is required. To reserve your place please visit our website or contact the Visitor Centre on 01483 813 593.
