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.
