Not too big or grand, but lovely anyway. Full of musical instruments going back to 1540, but pride must go to one from 1612, owned by HM Queen. Great for a 45 minute explore, folowed by a walk/sit in the lovely gardens.

A great welcome from the volunteers to this lovely house. It’s a historic home in every sense of the word and all the better for it. It’s enhanced both by a collection of impressive art and a collection of historic musical instruments of national importance....More

Interesting history and as it happens we were visiting with family from the Baltic region. I would recommend if you are a national trust member visiting or living in London.

Dating from the 17th century, this former merchant’s house is hidden away on a side street in Hampstead, and must rank as one of the National Trust’s smaller properties. Despite its size, it’s a jewel of a house and is crammed full of tapestries, paintings...More

With ancestral links to this House, I had quite a bit of knowledge about it before my visit. The nice surprises were the very helpful, informative volunteers and the afternoon concert played on some of the old instruments. What a treat! The setting of Fenton...More

Entrance is actually in Hampstead Grove. Fenton House is a 17th century belonging to the National Trust housing musical instruments and porcelain. Beautiful gardens surround the building and it’s a pleasure to stroll through the orchard, vegetable garden or just enjoy the flowers. A game...More
