About Kenwood House
On the edge of London's Hampstead Heath, Kenwood is a Jacobean house which Robert Adam transformed into a stunning neo-classical villa for Justice William Murray (later Earl of Mansfield). The interiors contain some of Adams finest surviving schemes, and his famous library at Kenwood is one of his greatest achievements.
