Fenton House, London

4.3
Fenton House is a 17th-century merchant's house in Hampstead in North London which belongs to the National Trust, bequeathed to them in 1952 by Lady Binning, its last owner and resident. It is a detached house with a walled garden, which is large by London standards, and features roses, an orchard and a working kitchen garden. The interior houses the Benton Fletcher collection of early keyboard instruments, some of which are often played for visitors during operational hours, and collections of paintings (including the collection of Peter Barkworth, and loans of Sir William Nicholson paintings), porcelain, 17th-century needlework pictures and Georgian furniture. It also has fine portraits of Dorothea Jordan, William IV, George IV, Frederick FitzClarence and Adolphus Fitzclarence - one of Jordan's daughters by William IV lived in the house.

  • Fenton House and Garden is absolutely gorgeous. I loved it. Go there yourself, bring the family, treat them. You won't regret it.
  • Fenton House is great if you love instruments. There is a piano-type instrument in every room, and there are also lutes, harps, and others. There are many small pieces of watercolour and endless amounts of porcelain. The garden is also quite pretty and surprisingly large for London.
