From Our Editors

Run by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Museums Service, Leighton House Museum is a 19th Century studio house, built for the artist Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896). Today the house is a showcase for collections of Leighton's drawings and regular exhibitions, and also plays host to a number of events such as walking tours and twilight tours. Leighton House can be hired in the evenings for cultural, social and corporate events. Popular as a location for photo shoots and filming, Leighton House can be hired by the hour, half day or full day on Tuesdays when available. The museum is open to the public daily except Tuesdays, from 10.00am - 5.30pm. Managed by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Museums Service, Leighton House Museum is a purpose-built, private studio-house that was once the home of artist Lord Frederic Leighton. An extraordinary feature of the building is the Arab Hall which features a golden dome, Islamic tiled walls and detailed mosaics. The museum houses collections of oil paintings, drawings and sculptures by Leighton, as well as collections by his various friends. Exhibitions, talks and courses are held regularly and it is possible to book private tours and school tours. Leighton House Museum, Studio and the Arab Hall are available to hire for private functions, along with the orangery. The museum is located near to Holland Park and is easily accessible from the West End of London.

It's one of those places you need to see but I can't say you need to see it twice.
