For those looking for a hidden English garden in London then Kenwood House ticks every box. Aside from the beautifully tranquil 112 acres of parkland that features ancient woodland, visitors can venture further out to enjoy the glory of Hampstead Heath. Inside Kenwood House lovers of fine art will be amazed by the huge collection of masterpieces on display from artists such as Rembrandt, Turner, Gainsborough and Vermeer, to name but a few.
Originally known as Caen Wood House, Kenwood House was built in 1616. The Mansfield family were owners for a number of centuries before Lord Iveagh purchased the house, and upon his death in 1927 left it to the nation. The art collection came with the property, a gift for which the millions of visitors who have been there can be thankful for.
