Walking Tour – Modernist Hampstead

25 June 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

£9 – £12

In this walking tour we’ll discover the revolutionary Modernist homes and idealistic architecture built in Hampstead in the 1930s onwards.

Discover the revolutionary Modernist homes and idealistic architecture built in Hampstead in the 1930s such as The Sun House by Maxwell Fry, and 66 Frognal by Connell Ward and Lucas. Much of the architecture echoed design trends in Europe and the walk includes passing housing by the émigré architects Ernst Freud and Erno Goldfinger. Elements of eighteenth-century architectural design were also an influence for some architects.

Passing some more recent examples and of course striking non modernist Hampstead buildings, this walk will finish at the iconic and idealistic Isokon flats in Belsize Park which were famous in the 1930s for enabling Bauhaus designers to live here to escape the Nazi regime.

2 Willow Road is now open on Saturdays. Tickets are limited and need to be booked separately in advance from the Thursday 2 weeks before and can be visited for tours at either 2pm or 3pm. The Isokon Gallery restrict numbers. There is also a special display about Agatha Christie, another Isokon resident.
