History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
In addition to the keyboards, Fenton House features collections of fine porcelain, including Chinese, Japanese, and European figures.
Wow! I honestly didn't expect to enjoy Fenton House as much as I did. While I was exploring the house a musician was trying out one on the historic pianos in preparation for one of the frequent concerts that Fenton House hosts. The music just enveloped the entire house in the most beautiful sound. It was heavenly. The interiors are pleasant, certainly not overwhelming; a very good example of an elegant, unpretentious town house.
The gardens, though small, are beautiful, and really give you a sense of the time period. You can get a pamphlet at the desk detailing a walk through historic Hampstead from Fenton House to another nearby National Trust property at 2 Willow Road. If you have the time, I can highly recommend this walk; it takes you past several fascinating period houses and outlines intriguing snippets of local history.
