Lonely Planet review

One of the oldest houses in Hampstead, this late-17th-century merchant’s residence has a charming walled garden with roses and an orchard, fine collections of porcelain and keyboard instruments – including a 1612 harpsichord played by Handel. The interior is very evocative thanks to original Georgian furniture and period art, such as 17th-century needlework pictures.
