This small museum is a gem, providing the visitor a glimpse in the history of the magnificent Hampstead Heath! Plan on a 45 minute visit, explore the laneways and alleys of Hampstead, then go to the Heath to walk the numerous paths. Refreshing and great landscapes!

Having our wedding at Burgh House was a great choice. The events team created a really special day for us. The food was delicious and the house is a romantic place to have a ceremony and reception. Definitely recommend it!

Burgh House is an intellectual oasis with a welcoming and friendly museum, buttery and shop. Visit, support but most of all enjoy. Small but perfectly formed and thank your lucky stars that you have this to enjoy rather than what might have happened had the council sold it off. For that reason alone it is worth anyone's visit and appreciation.... More

Then I observed the art exhibitions. The artists who made the paintings were there. They were able to explain me the paintings. Then I climbed up to... More

I went here on Sunday for tea and scon :) the cafe downstairs is very cosy and the garden is also lovely to. The museum is small but really nice and full of information regarding Hampstead history. I will definitely go back as it's not fully crowded or busy like other places in the area

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
