Please note that because of Christmas activities on 20th and 21st and 27th and 28th we will not be holding Under 5 activities. Come and join us this and following weekend for various Christmas activities from 10.00am - 4.00pm on each day.

 

 

Kenwood is now open! The masterpiece is complete, the paint is dry and the doors are open. Set on the edge of Hampstead Heath and surrounded by tranquil landscaped gardens, Kenwood is one of London's hidden gems.

The House, its breathtaking interiors and stunning art collection are free for everyone to enjoy. Discover the vast array of masterpieces hanging in this grand setting, including Rembrandt's self portrait, and be awed by the breathtaking beauty of architect Robert Adam's library.

Kenwood's beauty lies on offering something for everyone, from crafts and children's trails to a world class art collection, a cafe to relax and unwind in and acres of grounds to stretch your legs - come and see what Kenwood has to offer you.

This majestic Villa was the home of the great judge Lord Mansfield and his family, including his mixed-race niece Dido Belle - now the topic of the movie 'Belle' out in cinemas 12 June 2014.

Find out all about the Caring for Kenwood project and the changes that have been made.
