Private dining

Experience a unique setting for your event with private dining available in Leighton's grand studio or dining room

Guests enjoy a performance at a wedding reception in the studio, Leighton House.

Our spaces

At Leighton House we offer two stunning private dining spaces, both of which come with exclusive hire of the museum. Whether for a wedding reception, corporate event, or Christmas party we can accommodate both intimate gatherings in Leighton’s dining room, and larger banquets in his grand studio.

Leighton's dining room

Private events in Leighton’s dining room comes with the added allure of dining at his original table. Hardly ever used since his death in 1896, Leighton’s dining room offers an intimate, yet spectacular, opportunity to entertain your top clients or your closest friends. 

Leighton's studio

With its high ceilings, large north-facing window and walls lined with Leighton’s original artwork, Leighton's studio is a stunning setting to host a larger banquet.

Pre-dinner drinks and tours

Pre-dinner drinks may be held in the Arab Hall beforehand, with guests invited to explore the house at their leisure.

Why not add a pre-dinner tour of the house with one of our expert guides? 

Guests may take drinks in the garden until 9pm (weather dependant) between May and September.
