Kenwood House

North London

Family activities in the Orangery. Explorer backpacks for kids and a kids' trail around the historic house.

Kenwood House, on the border of Highgate and Hampstead, is also known as the Iveagh Bequest and dates from the early 17th century.

It is managed by English Heritage and sits on a wonderful 112 acre estate that is thought to have been inspired by the work of English landscape gardener Humphry Repton.

The building was remodelled by Robert Adam between 1764-1779, and a library added. In the following years a brewery and dairy was also added.

The house was bequeathed to the nation by Lord Iveagh in 1927.

Take a stroll round the grounds and you will find sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Eugène Dodeigne.
