There isn't really a view of London from the house itself (as it faces the wrong direction). There is a viewpoint just outside the grounds of the house, on another section of Hampstead Heath. CosmicSpirol (talk) 18:26, 19 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It sucks they stopped doing the lakeside concerts they were really great. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.83.121.172 (talk) 16:47, 9 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Mikhael Mikhaelovitch

I have seen your historicals informations about The Kenwood House in Hampstead - Greater London. The grand-duk Mikhael Mikhaelovitch of Russia and his familly were in Hampstead (London) beetween the years 1891 and 1927. they are buried in The Hampstead Cimetery. I think that the grand-duk familly were installed in the Kenwood House, but your article says nothing about the presence of the grand-dukal familly of Russia in this house. Could you verificate this possibillity and, if it is correct, could you introduise this information in your historical page of The Kenwood House, like you have do with The Keele Hall (Staffordshire - actualy university) where the same familly have live. I'm sorry for my poor English, but I'm french speaker.

Leading photo

[edit]

Hi @Murgatroyd49, would you mind explanining what you mean by saying the photo is "distorted"? The version you reverted to has an over-exposed sky and is quite old, so do any of the following appeal more:

Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of photos of the north facade, and as the south facade is significantly more photographed and expected (even if it isn't the entrance), I feel it would make sense to use a photo of it instead of the north. Or we could have both; maybe I'll go and take a good photograph myself another time. – Isochrone (T) 13:35, 21 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, the image you used has excessive perspective distortion making it look as though the building is falling backwards. I've changed it again for a better view of the south facade. One of the north facade images you suggested could usefully be used to replace the south facade shot in the article. If you have the opportunity to get a better shot of either, please do.

Ah alright, I'll look into that. Thanks – Isochrone (T) 13:45, 21 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
