Fenton House is beautiful 17th-century merchant's house home to an extensive range of porcelain as well as early keyboards and other instruments.
Lady Katherine Binning bought the house in 1936 and filled it with her highly decorative collections of porcelain, Georgian furniture and 17th-century needlework. The sound of early keyboard instruments and the colours of early 20th-century drawings and paintings add to a captivating experience.
Visit, and you can enjoy panoramic views of London from the top-floor balcony, hear beautiful period music, performed on the early keyboard instruments; or, if the weather is good, you can relax in the garden or enjoy a game of croquet.
