Visitor and Ticket Information



General Access

Leighton House Museum is open daily from 10.00am to 5.30pm, except Tuesdays. All tickets are for entry to the house and exhibition. 

Getting to us

EASTER 2015: The Museum will remain open as usual during Easter.

Please note that from Tuesday 7th April to Monday 13th April there will be some disruption as we take down our current exhibition A Victorian Obsession and return our permanent collection to the historic rooms.


To protect the delicate interiors of the house and ensure an enjoyable visit, entry will be by timed ticket only and advanced booking is highly recommended. Last entry is at 4.30pm.


Regrettably there is no step-free, or wheelchair access to any part of the house. More information about Access and Facilities


Due to the fragile nature of the building and current copyright restrictions, we limit the amount of photography in the museum. However, applications for photography for educational and research purposes are considered.  More information about Photography in the Museum
