Leighton House Museum

Unencumbered by either family or financial limits, Frederic, Lord Leighton created a space that was at once a home, a studio and an architectural expression of his artistic creed - his 'private palace of art'. The house was developed gradually over the course of three decades by architect George Aitchison, and was still in progress when he died in 1895. Now restored to full splendour, it is a museum to Leighton's life and work.
