"2 Willow Road" National Trust - 2 Willow Road Tip by Britannia2

  2 Willow Grove
by Britannia2

2 Willow Road must be the strangest title to give to an attraction on VT but this is a modernist house that is owned by the National Trust in Hampstead. Hampstead is mainly famous for its very desirable villa type properties or coattages but scattered around the village are a few more modern home and this is a very special one from 1939. It was designed by Modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger for himself and his family and on certain times through the week you can visit this house which 70 years on still looks modern today. It is
complete with original contents including furniture designed by Goldfinger and also on display the Goldfingers' collection of modern art, including works by Henry Moore, Max Ernst and Bridget Riley.
Well worth seeing - entry is £5.30 which is a little steep but you do get a guided tour and there is an audio visual show too - the website has more details. The guide was very informative.
Not suitable for disabled people as there are stairs through the house and also no toilet or parking facilities for anyone.

Address: 2 Willow Road, Hampstead, NW3 1TH
Directions: On the edge of the heath on the eastern side of the village near Christchurch Hill.
