The Leighton House has some nice paintings and looks to have a nice garden area (we were there in Dec)...also some decent items Leighton purchased around the world...the house itself is nice...
Not terrible impressed on the way items were displayed ...House can be done...More
This is a large house with beautiful interiors and some striking art work. The main-domed room and the balcony looking over it are especially striking. £9 might be a little steep though for a thirty minute visit.
The entrance fee of £9 appears relatively steep but as I have not been here for maybe 15 years I decided to give it a try. There was a major renovation in 2009 so the colour scheme is more as it would have been when...More
Just off High Street Kensington is this little gem of a museum. It belonged to Frederick Leighton and each of the rooms give you an insight of his life. The Arab Room is stunning and the tiles on the walls and the floors are beautiful....More

Highly recommend this museum for a short interlude from hectic sightseeing in London. Set in leafy, Holland Park neighborhood, this was both the home and studio of acclaimed British artist, Frederic Leighton. It is called “a private palace of art.” Leighton applied his artistic imagination...More

To be honest I’m not sure there is enough to interest young children as it’s not really made with children in mind. If your 7 year old knows what is there and is really keen to visit then I would say go ahead, but it probably won’t take you long to go round.
