A beautiful 17th century merchant's house situated right in the centre of Hampstead. There is an amazing collection of harpischords, porcelain and needlework. The walled garden, abundant with fruit and flowers in July, is sublime on a warm summer's afternoon with its 300 year old apple orchard!

The house belongs to the National Trust and some of the guides also speak German. Check out the views from the attic windows too.. from here you can see the O2 Arena! (Millenium Dome). Unfortunately no photography is permitted.

Check the website for ticket prices and opening times. A short walk away is the Erno Goldfinger modernist house - a total contrast to this one but well worth visiting if you are interested in architecture!

Address: Hampstead Grove
Directions: When you come out of the tube, cross the road where you see the old red brick fire station with the clock tower and walk up Holly Hill.
