Review: Leighton House – “a private palace of art”

The Arab Hall at Leighton House

Leighton House has to be one of my most favourite houses in London. Tucked away in a quiet, tree-lined residential road close to Holland Park and Kensington High Street, it is the former home and studio of leading Victorian painting, Frederic, Lord Leighton. Created as a “private palace of art” to showcase Leighton’s fine collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative art, the house was also  a place where the artistic and cultural denizens of London, and beyond, could gather for soirées, lectures and other events.
