Kenwood House (Iveagh Bequest)Robert Adam's neoclassical villa housing a notable collection of paintings.

A rich collection of famous paintings are housed within the walls of this neo-Classical villa perched by a lake on top of Hampstead Heath. Works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough form the property's famous Iveagh Bequest, handed down to the state by the house’s owner, brewing magnate Edward Cecil Guinness. Remodelled between 1764 and 1779 by Robert Adam, Kenwood features a lavish library and elegant array of rooms which provide a fitting backdrop for this notable artistic collection. Spectacular views, woodland walks and summer concerts provide a fitting backdrop for the house itself.

Best for...
…Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Reynolds, Constable and Gainsborough.

Also known as:
Iveagh Bequest

Did you know?
Constable's 'Hampstead Heath with Pond and Bathers' is now displayed here, metres away from where it was originally painted.
