Explore the former home of classical painter and President of the Royal Academy, Frederic, Lord Leighton, with a tour of his house on Holland Park Road. Leighton House Museum reflects Leighton's vision of a palace of art and contains dazzling mosaics and a fine collection of Victorian art, including paintings by Millais and his contemporaries. Tours of the museum are available including an evening tour with Lord Leighton and his house keeper Mrs Reid acting as your guide. There are also non-costume guided tours, or you can do a self-guided tour and download the iPod tour for free from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea website. There are free (with admission to the museum) public tours every Wednesday at 3pm. These sixty minute tours include special access to the servant quarters in the basement and the models' staircase. Please note: due to high public demand for the Wednesday public tours large groups (more than six people) cannot join these tours but should book as a group instead. This part of Kensington was a hive of artistic activity in the late Victorian era with artists like G.F. Watts, Luke Fildes, and John Everett Millais living nearby and the walking tour takes in the artists' houses on Melbury Road and Holland Park Road

Leighton House is one of the most opulent museums in London, and its small scale makes it easy enough to explore thoroughly in an afternoon.
