Levetons opened in 1887 in St Andrews Plain, Norwich and moved to Orford Hill in 1903. Its studio workshop were located later at 31 Timberhill in a purpose built studio. In 1980 the Retail Gallery relocated from Orford Hill to the same site. In 1998 the whole business left the City centre and established the studio in New Costessey and it now concentrates purely on framing, restoration, conservation and the artist material aspects of its original business.

Levetons are members of the Fine Art Trade Guild (The Guild) which upholds the standards of the profession.
