Join Sue Weir to enjoy a private guided tour of the historic homes of two Victorian artists: Linley Sambourne House* and the Leighton House.
Meet at Linley Sambourne House at 10:45am, the Punch political cartoonist and book illustrator’s rare untouched Victorian home from the 1870s, followed by lunch at a local Italian restaurant (not included in the price). And then continue to Lord Leighton’s ‘private palace of art’, with the Arab Hall, paintings, sculptures, Chinese porcelain and Persian rugs. The cafe at the house will be open for tea at the end of the tour (not included).
Places are limited, so we recommend booking soon to avoid disappointment. Registration will close on 27 November 2022 at 8:00am
Nearest underground station: High Street Kensington.
Price: £30 per person for the two guided tours (lunch and tea not included)
*Please note that Linley Sambourne's house has NO step-free access, there are stairs at every level.
