Leighton House Museum was owned by the Victorian artist Lord Frederic Leighton.
This three-story building was built by George Aitchison in the late 19th-century, and occupies a spot just south of Holland Park.
All of the rooms have been restored to how they would have looked in his day, and are filled with surprisingly expensive works of art – by the likes of John Everett Millias. Other Pre-Raphaelite paintings on display include Edward Burne-Jones, George Watts and Lord Leighton himself.
Don’t miss the splendid Arab Hall, based on an old Moorish banqueting hall in Sicily. It has an indoor fountain and marble pillars, and wooden lattice windows imported from Damascus. The Islamic tiles that decorate the walls were picked up by Leighton on his travels through Cairo, Turkey and Rhodes.
