Sir Frederick Leighton was a Victorian painter, and while I’m no fan of the genre, his house is well worth a visit. If you have ever seen the Stranglers’ video for ‘Golden Brown’, you will remember the extraordinary room in which it was filmed. That was Leighton’s Arab Hall, which looks like something straight out of the Alhambra.
