In the local area


A short walk from the museum is Camden Arts Centre, a lively hub for contemporary arts.

Hampstead has a concentration of London’s hidden gems; small historic houses that have a fascinating story to tell about their former residents.

An easy walk from the Freud Museum are the homes of poet John Keats, architect Erno Goldfinger, and Fenton House – a 17th century merchant’s home.

Further afield, across the Heath, is Kenwood – a beautiful stately home containing a great collection of Old Master paintings.


Do make the most of your escape from the crowds of central London by exploring these houses.

Along the way, you can wander through the charming cobbled streets of Hampstead Village, taking in the local shops, cafes and some famous old pubs, before heading for Hampstead Heath.

The woodlands and ponds of the Heath are popular with walkers and offer some of the best views of London.
