Fenton House

Historic Building in North London

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

If you're interested in seeing another unique, but this time very modern, home in Hampstead, there are joint tickets available with No 2 Willow Road for adult/child £11/5.50 that will save you a few pounds.
