There’s a garden party at Kenwood House today. The house is empty at the moment, as it’s waiting for a facelift. So, this open day is a great chance to take a free walk through one handsome house before it shuts its gates again for more than a year.
Make it between 11 am – 4 pm.
Before you ask: Yes, this is the place where they filmed that “Henry James” scene in Notting Hill.
Tip: After all that tea and cake, stroll across the heath. It’s going to be sunny with wandering clouds and bold winds. Yep, just like in Jane Austen.
