Lonely Planet review

Tucked away behind Kensington High St, this was the home of Punch cartoonist and amateur photographer Linley Sambourne and his wife Marion from 1875 to 1914. What you see is pretty much the typical home of a comfortable middle-class Victorian family, with dark wood, Turkish carpets and rich stained glass throughout.

You can visit some nine rooms, by 90-minute guided tour only (on weekends, the guide on all but the first tour is garbed in period costume). A discount of £1 is available with the Leighton House subscription card.
