Set on the edge of Hampstead Heath and surrounded by huge gardens, Kenwood is one of London's hidden gems. Remodelled and extended by the Scottish architect Robert Adam for William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield, from 1764 to 1779, the architect designed the interiors as well as the outside look.
It include some of his finest surviving schemes, particularly the ‘Great Room’ or library. After Kenwood’s original contents were sold in 1922, the house and grounds were bought by Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh, who in 1927 bequeathed his outstanding collection of paintings to the nation.
Today you can still admire this stunning art collection, a vast array of masterpieces hanging in this grand setting, including Rembrandt's self portrait and have a gaze at this unique and impressive library from architect Robert Adam.
