Leighton House is the former home of the Victorian painter, Lord Frederic Leighton, which has been open to the public since 1929. Stepping inside you are transported to this amazing Orientalist-meets-Pre-
Those interested in Islamic and Oriental art will love the Arab Hall at the centre of the house. The room was designed to display Leighton's priceless collection of more than a thousand Islamic tiles, mostly brought back from Damascus in Syria.
We highly recommend this museum to interior designers, architects and art addicts alike.
