If best things in life are free, Kenwood House is definitely one of them. It’s a magical place in London, almost like a time capsule, a feelgood estate all year round. Love the coffee shop, lovely ambiance and the cakes are superb.

The only bus that stops outside Kenwood is the 210 which runs from Brent Cross to Finsbury Park. However, it is a pleasant enough walk from Highgate where the 43 from Friern Barnet drops off. On Mondays, Weds, Fridays and... More
