London’s richness and variety results from its growth as a tapestry of villages each with its own character and history. Few have retained the village atmosphere as well as Hampstead. We take a short walk through attractive lanes lined with beautiful old houses and visit one of London’s last remaining grand country houses. Morning refreshments and a roast lunch are included.
Meet your Blue Badge Guide in Hampstead at 10.30am for morning refreshments before a gentle stroll through the lanes of old Hampstead. High above the London smog the clean air and cheap housing attracted artists and writers to form the Montmartre of London. Today Hampstead has more millionaires than anywhere else in the UK. We visit the church where Constable is buried before returning to the pub for a roast lunch. Individuals can pay for any bar drinks, hot drinks or desserts as required on the day.
Next to Kenwood via a scenic route through the old embassy district of Bishops Avenue that turned into one of the UK’s first millionaire rows when stars like Billy Butlin and Gracie Fields moved in.
Kenwood country house has wonderful views over London and is full of great art works including Gainsborough, and Turner. Enjoy our guided tour and some free time to take in the views and buy tea in the old coach house before heading home at 4.45pm.
