Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
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." Work out when and for how long to visit Kenwood House and other London attractions using our handy London tour planner.

  • I went to Kenwood House to see Veremeer's work. It's small house but this gallery's lineup is excellent. If you go in the mourning, you can enjoy in a relaxed room. The staffs have enough knowledge. T...  read more »
  • Kenwood House made part of these magical places that're just standing you in a corner of the heart and the reunion are a delight. Take time out from the metro Hampstead to come walk along the Moor, the landscape takes you away from the city, bringing you back to a bygone era, "from the top of Wuthering Heights" and then past the Spanniard, this old pub where to stop to enjoy a pint, you will enter the property which is a marvel of calm and beauty. The building that can be seen in the film "Coup de Notting Hill" has an extraordinary collection of furniture and paintings (especially of the English school: Lawrence, Gainsborough, Reynolds, etc). The staff is at your entire service and passionate about the discovery he made you do this Palace. Before entering, must make a tour of the Park, down to the pond and without noise (to see squirrels, bullfinches and other parrots, but yes), through wood, climb the Hill and relax, sitting at the garden of plants. For movie lovers, the film "Beautiful" traces the life of the heroine in this property. Still a plus, it's free!

  • Staffs and volunteers are really friendly and helpful. Beautiful garden. There are plenty of bench to rest and a nice lake view. The cafe was cozy with many choice of bread and cakes. Recommended latte. Scones 1.20£ per piece to lunch set of sausages at 10.99£. The house is nicely maintained, two floors. Buggy not allowed inside. Test some outfits for photo at the Orange Room. There is restroom inside. We saw wild rabbits.
  • A beautiful 17th century stately house with an interesting collection of paintings. Check out the small collection of shoe buckles and jewellery on the second floor. Also, a great kids area for a rainy day.
  • Fantastic! Beautiful perfectly preserved Robert Adam 18th c. country manor. Free entry. Gorgeous art by Reynolds, Gainsburgh, etc and a beautiful courtyard cafe with outdoor seating overlooking the Victorian kitchen garden!
  • Probably the best thing to do on a (rare) sunny weekend in London. Beautifully kept grounds, a great little restaurant serving good, hearty British food (and more) plus a nice heritage shop where you can buy mead, cherry wine and a varied selection of the quaintest knick-knacks you can think of. It's all very peaceful and green and probably the closest you can get to feeling like you're out in nature without leaving London.
  • Must to visit when in London for more than a week. Impressive collection of arts. Beautiful and recently renowated house with a cozy and popular lunch venue.
