Kenwood House – Interiors
Kenwood House is free to enter and photography is allowed. It houses a massive art collection bequeathed by Lord Iveagh (Vermeer, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Reynolds, Larkin and Boucher) and sits amongst an ornamental garden with parklands and is adjacent to Hampstead Heath. There is also a shop and the cafe, Gardens ( here ) and Flowers ( here ) are a delight .
It does get quite busy with tours and school trips. Nevertheless it has a calm ambiance with friendly staff and an occasional school party sitting on the floor quietly mesmerized by a story teller. You might wish to click on The Website.
The easiest route is to Archway underground station and then the 210 bus from stand E to the next stand E by Compton Rd.
It seems that selfies are nothing new to the world.
Thanks for the sight-seeing! 🙂

When my kids were smalI and I had a rare day off, I treated myself to a random day out to Kenwood House. I walked from Hampstead station and enjoyed the pretty High Street, and walking along the wooded areas, and it was so incredible that this house was hidden in this suburban existence. Your pictures really do it justice!

Thank you and for your remembrance. The whole place seemed very peaceful. It’s nice to find places where photography is allowed. There will be pictures of the grounds later. 🙂

I collect Wedgewood so I particularly like this one! It looks like Wedgewood interiors. Also love the cameos. Beauteous Gaham, and I cannot see as I type this. I am at the public library because The Holler’s wifi is out and I forgot my glasses, but I can see how lovely this is.

I’m glad you enjoyed. There are always a lot of volunteers involved in these restorations. I’m hoping they’ll do me next. 😀
