This Queen Anne home (1703) in the center of Hampstead village was the residence of the daughter and son-in-law of Rudyard Kipling (who often visited). It now plays host to a busy cultural program with various events organized here throughout the year, including local art exhibitions, talks, and walks, as well as classical concerts and recitals.

When no events are taking place (something of a rarity), the main draw for visitors is the Hampstead Museum, which illustrates the local history of the area, focusing in particular on the many artists and writers who have made the area their home over the past 2 centuries. Children's trails are available from the front desk.
