Kenwood House, London

4.6
Renowned for the artwork it houses, Kenwood House is a grand, stately home with a beautiful garden and sculptures. Dating from the 17th century, architects and owners of the attraction gradually added a library, portico, offices, kitchen buildings, and a brewery over the years. Today, the brewery serves as a restaurant where you can grab lunch after exploring the lavishly decorated rooms and grounds. Look for the sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and Eugène Dodeigne in the gardens, and take a walk through the ancient woodlands. This attraction was also featured in the 1999 film "Notting Hill." A visit to Kenwood House represents just the start of the adventure when you use our London trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • While you are walking around the Hampstead Heath area, stop by Kenwood House and appreciate the neoclassical villa that was built in the late 1700s. It is to the north of the heath proper and an inter...  more »
  • Kenwood House is free to visit, but you can opt to pay for a guided tour. There is plenty of information to hand about the artwork in each room, and we opted to make our own way through the house. Bot...  more »

  • One of the most beautiful examples of fine English country house within London. Robert Adams ceiling , Gainsborough paitings and much more in this house. The park itself is already an attraction apart. Definitely worth visiting
  • Surprisingly good. For the artwork on display, there are some big names, but the pictures don't quite hit the mark. The building is imposing and most impressive from the garden at the front. This is the real real star of the show - the grounds, which are excellent. Make sure you walk up to see the view across the heath and over central London.
  • Wonderful house and grounds. You might recognize the back of the house because it was used for one scene of "Notting Hill"! Just side of the house you can have a lovely spot of London City, alternative to the most popular one from Primrose Hill. Be aware that the parking has few spaces!!
  • The most low-spirited city may look strange on this list but there are some spots that have been famous with histories as engagement locations. Few of the locations that are famous in London where you could plan a perfect engagement setting are the London Eye, the Buckingham Palace and the Kenwood House.
  • Another gem to visit in London, truly beautiful.Historic art, kenwood house is very grand. Open air concerts are fun. The cafe has lovely food & staff are great.
