VILLAGE ATMOSPHERE AND PICTURESQUE LANES
SWEEPING VIEWS OF LONDON FROM SURROUNDING HILLS
KENWOOD HOUSE AND MAGNIFICENT ART COLLECTION
Away from the crowded city explore the undulating leafy lanes of
village Hampstead with its pretty cottages, unique shops and hidden
corners with your private guide. High on the hills of north London,
Hampstead was home to famous painters, poets and novelists. See
the areas that inspired them, from uplifting views across the Heath
to spooky overgrown churchyards.
You may like to visit the house where Keats composed his "Ode to
a Nightingale", or a 17th century house with a wonderful collection
of keyboard instruments and a beautiful walled garden. We also see
the house which inspired a James Bond villain!
Famed for its clear air and at one time also for its health-giving waters, Hampstead is an intriguingly different area of London, providing stunning views of the City. It is easy to see why this beautiful area attracts the rich and famous today.
Why not make a day of it and visit Kenwood House with us? The backdrop for various films this elegant 18th century house and lake make a delightful end to a stroll across the woods and open spaces of beautiful Hampstead Heath. Your guide will show you the highlights of the magnificent art collection including masterpieces by Vermeer, Rembrandt and Gainsborough, as well as showing you a very good place for afternoon tea!
