Friends visit to Leighton House

  • Thursday 19th February 2015

A visit to Leighton House, one of our National Trust Partners, is planned for Friends of The Fan Museum.

Leighton House, one of the most remarkable buildings of the 19th century, is the only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the United Kingdom. It grew from modest beginnings into a ‘private palace of art’, especially notable for its extraordinary Arab Hall with its golden dome, intricate mosaics and walls lined with beautiful Islamic tiles.

The current exhibition, ‘A Victorian Obsession’, includes work by Lawrence Alma-Tadema,  Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais and John William Waterhouse as well as Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830 -96) for whom the house was built.

Please note that there is no step-free or wheelchair access to the house.
