Leighton House Museum Museums
12 Holland Park Road
Leighton House Museum is the former studio-house of the great Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896). Located on the edge of London's Holland Park, the house is one of the most extraordinary buildings of the nineteenth century. Leighton was planning the construction of his house from 1864 and he was in residence by 1866. His architect was George Aitchison. Together architect and artist would continue to embellish and extend the building almost until Leighton's death in 1896.
Leighton House Museum has an outstanding collection of Leighton's drawings. Most of these were acquired in the years immediately following the artist's death. With the addition of later purchases the collection now comprises over seven hundred works.
Leighton House is open daily except Tuesdays from 11am to 5.30pm.
A large and peaceful garden, restored in 1997 to conform to the original layout and planting scheme is located to the rear of the Museum and is open from April until the end of September (depending on weather conditions).
