Leighton House & Arab Hall


Leighton House & Arab Hall

The studio-home of the Victorian artist Frederic Lord Leighton.

Location: Leighton House Museum, 12 Holland Park Road, W14 8LZ

Description: Leighton House was the studio-home of the Victorian artist Frederic Lord Leighton and here you'll find drawings by this great draughtsman and paintings by John Everett Millais and Edward Burne-Jones.

The centrepiece of the late 1870s extension to the house, the Arab Hall was conceived as a means to display the extraordinary collection of ceramic tiles amassed by Leighton through the 1860s and 70s. Based on a banqueting room at the Moorish palace of La Zisa in Palermo, Sicily, the interior is a unique combination of late nineteenth century craftsmanship with the most important collection of 16th and 17th century Damascus tiles in Britain.

Dont fall in the serene pool of water in the center of the Arab Hall!
