Details

Come along on Sunday 14th April for a visit to Fenton House in Hampstead!

About the house
Fenton House is a 17th-century merchant's house in Hampstead which belongs to the National Trust. It was 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, porcelain, 17th-century needlework pictures and Georgian furniture.

The 17th-century brick mansion has a 300-year-old orchard, where around 30 types of apple trees flourish.

The visit should last about 1h 30mins. The visit is self guiding.

Entry cost is £8 per person for Full Members and £9 per person for everyone else (payable on the day). If you are a member of the National Trust, its free.
