Tucked away in the back streets of Hampstead, this early 18th century house is the home of a small but very interesting exhibition about Hampstead. But we particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibition comparing historic depictions of Hampstead with contemporary photos from the same viewpoint. We had not realised how fast Hampstead changed from a church and a few houses, isolated... More

Burgh House is a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of London, and Hampstead. It is a gem of a museum and we have visited many times... The museum features maps showing where the bombs fell on the local area during WWII. This can make for an interesting exploration of the architecture on the nearby streets! The garden is... More

We came across Burgh House on our way to the heath, it was free and delightful small art gallery and museum. Very friendly guys in the house and a lovely tea after in the garden with great cake, we will visit again next time we come to Hampstead

The entrance to the house is hidden by a big hedge in the garden. I asked a waitress where the entrance to the house was. A simple innocent question one would think. The woman stood in my face and barked at me as though having an argument: If I wanted the café entrance, the concert entrance or the garden. Each... More

We went to the Buttery cafe. It was beautiful. The cafe is downstairs in the basement, it looks fine but what really makes it great is the garden. It is idyllic and secluded. The cakes were lovely and the coffe well made and tasty. We will definitely be spending a lot of summer afternoons here as it's so close to... More

we got a last minute Friday night booking for our last minute wedding. We probably needed a bit more time to organise everything more calmly and to meet the staff there face to face to iron out details, but in the end it was a fantastic evening. The venue is stunning, the staff genuinely wonderful - friendly, efficient and thoughtful.... More

Went there this Sunday for a relaxing cup of coffee and some scones whilst being out for a walk with my parents and some friends. Having strolled Hampstead and before entering into the Heath, Burgh House was the ideal location to have a coffee. The weather being warm and sunny, we were able to sit outside in the sunshine.

This Queen Anne period building is situated in Hampstead, the most interesting and picturesque part of London with its tree-lined roads and alleys, full of history. Burgh House is a museum as well as holding various exhibitions and if free to enter. It is not that large but would easily keep you busy for an our or two. Additionally there... More

It is rather hidden from the high street but well worth the visit. Gorgeous historical house, free admission. With history of Hampstead exhibition. I love eating there - Moroccan lamb is delicious, and gardens are truly beautiful. Being there in the summer in the gardens with roses and jasmine is a very pleasant experience. They have classical concerts and art... More
