“Join Me” visit to Leighton House enjoyed by dedicated group!


Charles and Marianne Marriott and Steve Palmer joined me at Leyton house on December 5 last year and we all enjoyed the splendours of this Victorian studio house with its Moorish details and impressive north-light studio.

The ” Victorian Obsession” exhibition of paintings by Lord Leighton and contemporaries including Pre-Raphaelite painters John Everett Millais, John William Waterhouse and Edward Burn-Jones added much to the enjoyment of the visit. Leyton house is certainly one of London’s hidden gems. Some already knew the building quite well but for others it was a new experience. Sadly, though they proposed to come, Bernard and Jane Diver were kept at home by a major plumbing emergency!

We met in before hand Café Fred in Earls Court Road over a coffee and after our visit enjoyed a lunch in a Lebanese restaurant in Kensington High Street before going our separate ways. TGB
