    • Such a good book. A real gem. I was immersed in the grandeur of London past and present. The stories behind the houses, their architects, builders and inhabitants is fascinating. So many of these places are now embassies and corporate HQs, which means they are closed to the public. Not sure why Kenwood didn't make the cut - maybe it's too famous, but then Apsley House is in there and that's a tourist mecca. Lovely.
