Leighton House is the former Victorian home and studio of Olympian artist Lord Frederic Leighton. Designed by George Aitchison, the Leighton House is regarded as one of the finest examples of classical Victorian residential architecture, with distinctly Arabesque interiors on the ground floor. It is now a museum showcasing works by Lord Leighton as well as many famous artists including Millais and Watts. On his death, several of the paintings in his collection were auctioned off at Christie's, some of which were later retrieved by the museum here for display.
