National Trust: Fenton House


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.

You don't have to go to the country to visit a country house you know, you can just get on the Northern line to Hampstead! This National Trust gem has many examples of early keyboard instruments most of which are still in good working order, as well as needlework and paintings which date back to the 17th century when the house itself was built.

As wonderful as the house is on its own though,...more

Fantastic. I love fenton House. It's a dream house. It belongs to the National Trust so you can never live there (sigh) but it's a beautiful place to visit. It has a fine collection of harpsichords and all kinds of beautiful things in the rooms - porcelain etc. I like the stump work best - that's a type of embroidery with raised fabrics, a bit hard to describe but just fascinating.
