VENUE OF THE MONTH: LEIGHTON HOUSE
1 Apr 2019 | Shay Stanberry
If you are looking for character, historic charm and a grand space with an intimate feel then Leighton House is the perfect venue for you. First opened to the public in 1929, Leighton House Museum is the former home of the Victorian artist Lord Frederic Leighton.
Designed to entertain, the House has an impressive collection of art and a range of rooms with opulent interiors. Host your event at this lavish venue and have the opportunity to spend your evening in the unique Arab Hall. The royal atmosphere and collection of Islamic tiles will provide a conversation piece of its own for you and your guests throughout the evening. Leighton said he had built it
“… for the sake of looking at something beautiful every once in a while.” We couldn’t agree more.
Other event spaces include the Grand Studio, where Leighton painted his greatest works, complete with a Steinway B grand piano for guests to be entertained during dinner; the intimate Dining Room; and in the summer months, the Private Garden.
