This beautiful neo-classical 18th-century building looks out over an equally beautiful part of Hampstead Heath. English Heritage has restored much of the house to its original form, and the architectural elegance is stunning. There is a small but excellent collection of fine art here, with offerings from Rembrandt, Gainsborough and Turner. Check out Kenwood Lakeside Concerts during the summer. There are also fireworks displays and even sing-along Sound of Music nights. Entry to the house is free, but there is a charge for concerts. Please note that wheelchair access is on the ground floor of the house only. Timings vary as per season.
