Kenwood House

There's lovely autumn colour in the grounds of Kenwood House, a recently restored 17th century mansion on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Between 1764 and 1779 it was remodelled by Robert Adam into a neo-classical villa for William Murray, the 1st Earl of Mansfield and it has some beautiful Adam interior schemes. Now in the care of English Heritage, it also holds a fine collection of paintings bequeathed by the 1st Earl of Iveagh, among them works by Rembrandt and Vermeer. 


  1. Beautifully composed shots. The colours and the opulence are quite amazing.

  2. Fabulous pics, Jenny! What a place!

  3. What a lovely place. It must have been an impressive place to tour.
