This virtual visit to Leighton House will allow you to navigate through its dreamy interiors and explore collection highlights.
Leighton House is one of the most extraordinary Victorian buildings in the country, the vision of Frederic Leighton (1830-1896), President of the Royal Academy, who lived there for 30 years. Behind its unassuming exterior lies a kaleidoscope of art forms, ideas and cultural references, expressed vividly across the extraordinary suite of interiors and Leighton’s art collections.
The house was designed by his great friend, the architect George Aitchison RA as a showcase for artistic taste and to entertain and impress the foremost artists, collectors and celebrities of the day.
