Kenwood House has been perched on the top of Hampstead Heath, overlooking the centre of London, since the 18th century.

The UK’s largest food festival is teaming up with English Heritage to launch two new festivals this year, at Kenwood House and Marble Hill House.

The two classic English Heritage properties are the latest additions to the Foodies Festivals’ extended series of nine food festivals this summer.

The two properties will be offering drinks masterclasses, pop-up restaurant tents, children’s cookery theatres and demonstrations from top British chefs.

Alex Sydney, head of historic properties in London for English Heritage, told Britain magazine:

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to host the Foodies Festival at both Kenwood House and Marble Hill House this year. Both properties are well loved by local residents and by visitors who travel from further afield. I’m sure that a high quality, family friendly event like the Foodies Festival will be extremely popular and can hopefully become a regular fixture at both Kenwood and Marble Hill for many years to come.”

Marble Hill House, Twickenham, is a beautiful Georgian villa on the banks of the River Thames.

Marble Hill House festival will run from 24-26 May and Kenwood House festival will run from 30 May to 1 June.
