Information about The Thomas Layton Collection

Trust for the Thomas Layton Collection.


Thomas Layton collected books, coins, and archaeological items (known as ‘antiquities’) for 70 years.  In that time he had accumulated what has been described as "probably the largest collection of London antiquities ever amassed by a single individual".


On his death in 1911, Layton gave £20,000 and all his collection to the people of Brentford.
