Note

Located on the edge of Hampstead Heath is architect Ernö Goldfinger's innovative Modernist home, which he designed as his family home in the late 1930s and where he lived until his death in 1989. It's one of just three Modernist houses in the country that are open to the public.

On display are Goldfinger's personal belongings, impressive collection of modern art and of course his cutting edge furniture, including the black laminate top desk with unique pivoting drawers.

The house is open Wednesday to Sunday 11.00-17.00, with guided tours at 11.00, 12.00, 13.00 and 14.00. Places are limited with tickets available on the day only at the door. Between 15.00 to 17.00, you can walk around on your own after watching a short introductory film about Goldfinger's life in the tiny cinema. Wednesdays to Fridays are occasionally booked by groups, so do call ahead of your visit.

Entry costs £6 (or £9 if combined with entry to the nearby Fenton House and Garden, a 17th century merchant's house with walled garden, also open Wed-Sun 11.00-17.00).
