Museums

Leighton House Museum is the former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896). The only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the United Kingdom, it is one of the most remarkable buildings of the nineteenth century, containing a fascinating collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries.

Leighton House Museum has opportunities coming up from February 2016 for Room Guides and Day Leaders to help with the next exhibition.

The Room Guides will be on hand to provide a warm, friendly welcome to visitors and keep an eye on the paintings in our rooms. The Day Leaders will help organise and assist with the management of volunteers; as well as help with the roles in the house.

18 Stafford Terrace

18 Stafford Terrace was the home of Punch cartoonist, Edward Linley Sambourne, his wife Marion and their two children from 1875. Originally decorated by the Sambournes in-keeping with fashionable Aesthetic principles, the interiors evolved into wonderfully eclectic artistic statements within the confines off a typical middle class home.

Stafford Terrace are looking for Room Guides to help with their new Open Access arrangements from 2pm to 5.30pm every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
