Talk about this event

Craig’s review of Leighton House Museum – “The Leighton House Museum is the architectural equivalent of opening up a brown paper bag and finding a diamond inside. This guy was an artist, and he lived inside a work of art. Don't be put off by the photo of the front. This house will never win any awards for the outside. It's not until you get beyond the entrance hall that you'll understand what all the fuss is… continued”
