LRG guided tour Kenwood House

Travel: Gospel Oak or Hampstead Heath Overground; Golders Green or Archway Underground,
then Bus 210 stops by the House entrance.

Roger Bone, who has taken LRG members on many interesting historic pub tours around London, will take us around this lovely 18 century house in Hampstead.

For more on Kenwood, see:

http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/kenwood/

The tour of the house will take about 90 minutes, of the grounds - with their famous views - about 30 minutes. There is a very pleasant café on the terrace for those who don’t want to walk around the grounds and we can also meet there around 1.15pm for lunch.

The House is one of London’s most interesting and beautiful houses with its famous views over London from Hampstead Heath. It has a fascinating story to tell and contains one of the most important and dramatic collections of pictures in the UK some of which will be described on the tour. The Robert Adam Library is said to be the most beautiful room in London!

Closely linked with Lord Chief Justice Mansfield in the eighteenth century, the film Belle, dealing with the beginning of the abolition of slavery movement with William Wilberforce was shot here.
