Where is it? Hampstead

Enjoy one of London's hidden gems right near Hampstead Heath - while heritage properties and stately homes are often expensive to visit, you can come to Kenwood House for free to enjoy a picnic in the gardens, explore the refurbished library, look at the architecture, or take your little one on a trail.

You might want to have a quiet picnic away from the bustle of a lot of the London parks - Kenwood is home to some woodland, a dairy, and a sculpture garden, with plenty of spots to choose from and explore in its 112 acres of gardens.

If your little one is up for a walk through the house, you can view the world-class art collection including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, and Gainsborough.

If you're on the hunt for a more kid-focused activity day, you can ask to borrow an explorer backpack and go on a trail during your visit, before stopping in at the café to check out the children's menu and refuel.
