Home designed and built by Ernö Goldfinger in 1939 is a fine example of Modernist architecture, which is filled with furniture designed by Goldfinger and an interesting art collection of works by Henry Moore and Max Ernst.

I turned up for the 11 am tour and there is the 15 minute video beforehand which was good to see to put the house and designer in context of his time. Can only go round on a tour which took over an hour. Is...More

While there is no faulting the quality and historical significance of the building, the whole customer interface is unsatisfactory. There are no advanced ticket sales, and anyone who shows up (on time or late) is admitted to the tour. As a result our tour was...More

This is one of those places you either like or you don’t. Suffice it to say that it is entirely consistent with the brutalist concrete tower blocks and commercial premises Goldfinger designed. That is, it is modern in design inside and out, and its interior...More

This was a really interesting tour, the bespoke home of an architect who was ahead of his time Erno Goldfinger. The tour is 45 minutes long after a 10 minute introductory video. The house is tucked away in a residential area just off Hampstead Heath....More

After enjoyable visit at Fenton House, my husband and I were heading to Keats House. Then suddenly we realise we are passing by this house. It was only guided tour time, so we came back after 3:00pm, apparently free to look around afterwards. The house...More

We had a fantastic guide on Saturday to this fantastic house from the 1930s which was really so modern. We loved it all, especially the ingenious furniture creations and the use of space. The thought and detail in the design was inspiring. It has made...More
