Great for topics around local history, homes and how others lived, as well as a significant person. Key Stage 3 groups can also explore Kenwood's connection to the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade through its previous owner, Lord Mansfield with our expert-led Discovery Visit. Or, bring your sketchbooks and draw inspiration from our internationally renowned art collections. There's also ample outdoor grassed areas ideal for activities or a picturesque lunch spot.
